“I just liked working with the kids,” Shepard said. “It kept me young.”

Principal Patrick Hartnett likened Shepard’s tenure to that of a baseball Hall of Famer.

MIDDLEBURY — Many Addison County residents know “Hobbes” as the irrepressible little dachshund who has joined radio personality Bruce Zeman on the local airwaves for the past three years.
