Pets As Therapy READ2DOGS scheme
Doug the Pug Therapy Dog feels that being a volunteer School Reading Dog, with the Pets As Therapy READ2DOGS scheme, is a great job!
Inspiring the little peeps to enjoy a love of reading is a privilege.
And it made Doug the Pug Therapy Dog’s heart sing to have a young friend bring a leaflet with him to show us, knowing that we’d be interested in all he shared.
He said that he knew Doug the Pug Therapy Dog didn’t believe that cats and dogs can’t be friends, and that we should all choose to be friends with whoever makes us happy, so he knew that a leaflet about a cat cafe that he wanted to go to would interest us too.
Doug the Pug Therapy Dog loved it that this young man knew that it didn’t matter at all that he chose to bring this leaflet and not his school reading book.
We were gladdened that he chose something he actually wanted to read.
Encouraging little ones to see reading as an essential tool, to access knowledge and increase life’s opportunities, is a privilege for us too.
Doug the Pug Therapy Dog delighted in being as excited as he was too in reading of such fabulous opportunities that he might go on to share with friends.
That’s what learning to read should be all about.
