A visit from two very special dogs

We are lucky to be getting a weekly visit from now on from two beautiful dogs, Fenway, a sheltie, and a dalmatian named Ghost, and their owners Kathy-Jo Farren and Dawn Eliot. The dogs are “Tail Wagging Tutors”: dogs who are highly trained to handle all kinds of situations. After they pass a test, they become certified therapy dogs with Therapy Dogs International and they can visit children in schools, sick people in hospitals, seniors in nursing homes, etc. Kathy-Jo and Dawn, who both work at Bethel Animal Hospital, are so excited to be a part of this program, and the students at CPS are pretty happy to welcome Fenway and Ghost. Yesterday the dogs were read to by students in the Title I room before visiting the library for this photo shoot with Mrs. Lee’s second grade class.
