My Gracie is not only my best bud, but she is also a big part of my teaching now! She is a certified therapy and READ (Reading Education Assistance Dog) dog. I take her in to school once a week for an after school reading club. We also do the "Puppy Tales" program at the public library. Next week, I have a summer dog safety/care and reading club scheduled! It's so awesome to combine 2 things I really enjoy-dogs and teaching!
