Therapy Dogs make People feel Good

Our pup, Cassie, doesn’t always listen or come when called. She has a basket with way too many stuffed animals, leaves globs of fur everywhere she goes, and finagles an awful lot of treats.  But I learned one thing today when we took her to a local public elementary school to read with 4th and 5th graders: she makes kids happy. They read Sun Dog, Fun Dog  and The Giving Tree to her on this #dayofservice, and when we asked “what do dogs give?” we got great responses:  Hugs! Love! Friendship! Kindness!

 Just take a look at the faces of these children, and you know at a glance, therapy dogs make people feel good.
