On our last day of learning about intellectual and emotional challenges, we had a special treat. One of my students brought in her dog that is taking classes on how to be a therapy dog. She is a beautiful dog and will be used to comfort and encourage people living in nursing homes, people suffering from emotional trauma, and even our veterans who have suffered all kinds of loss and need encouragement. It was sweet to be with her because she made all of us happy during the time she spent with us.
The children learned the difference between service dogs and therapy dogs. I know I learned a variety of things I didn’t know before. Thank you, sweet girl, for visiting us and adding joy to all of our days!
