I just tried to get Dreyfus into the teen center and they said NO. They already o.k.d me for a bite prevention talk but won't let dogs in?

Way to go Maryellen!
That stinks! How rude :x Keep checking around the public library also has paws for reading programs, I bet you find a great place to take the dogs

That is awesome! I always thought I would do something like that when I got a dog, and now I have a Greyhound who would rather ignore people outside of the house than sit with kids and be read to. He would just cry the whole time. LOL!

My roommate does the READ program with her Rottie. I hope to get a pup to do it with. I just love hearing that a pit is out in public, doing good. I can't wait to see pictures!!
