Little Lamb Found Outside a School Waiting for her Owner, Mary
In Maryland, Mary Milligan of 13 years has a little lamb called Larry , and its fleece is white as snow. She received the lamb in June when it was just a newborn. The little lamb was gifted to her by her grandfather who passed away the following week. Larry started following Mary around more in July. It followed her everywhere. The lamb followed her this past Friday to Lemington Junior High, which is against the school rules to bring pets to the educational environment. The children didn't really even mind. All they did was laugh and play with the little lamb. It made the children laugh, because they had never seen a lamb as playful as Larry, and all the children wanted to get a turn to play and see a lamb at school. The lamb was causing so much commotion that the Miss Frizz, a 7th grade teacher, turned it out near the other side of the sidewalk, but still it lingered near. The lamb waited patiently until Mary did appear."Why does the lamb love Mary so?" the eager children wonder. All Miss Frizz had to say about it was “Mary loves the lamb so very much you know."
