Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Once Again, Dogs Do Their Duty

Kristen Kubilus of South Brunswick Patch has the story:

“The way he speaks in front of others has improved and he has become more confident,” Dhillon said of her son. “He loves the dog.”

Dhillon continued, “No one is judging him if he makes a mistake. The dog is listening to him. He picks out the book in the beginning of the week, practices it, and then he can come and read it in front of his friends.”

Vikas Bawa agrees that the therapy dog has been a great reading partner to his two daughters. When mentioning his three-year-old, Riya, he said, “She could read, but she was very shy. She wasn’t outspoken. With the dog, she reads out loud and is able to be more extroverted.”
