All it took is one picture of a sad dog.


That is one sweet story! I was just telling Liz, I think you are one of the best bloggers I read regularly. You find the best material and enhance it greatly.


You know how I love a happy ending and this one is very happy. There shall be reading and more reading. Excellent.

Have a fabulous day. ♥


That makes me weepy.


I'm glad the sad pic worked. Kids reading to dogs is a win win situation that should be promoted.

He looks so sad. I am glad he is booked for a long engagement

I saw this story on Facebook and it broke my heart. I'm so glad that people have rallied around him.


I'm so glad Sting is getting to have kids read to him. My granddog Rocky Chaco Man is a reading dog here in Grand Junction. The program actually made the NEW YORK POST: https://nypost.com/2018/02/03/dogs-lend-an-ear-to-help-kids-with-reading-skills/
Rocky LOVES having kids lay on him and read.
I'll just bet Sting is just as happy now!

Awww, too bad it took a sad pic to get people to sign up. This is such a great program, I hope people take advantage of it. We need people to be able to read!

I love this idea. There are so many ways animals benefit children, I wish we incorporated them more.
