Poor King. He loves his job as a Reading Buddy at the Kelly School in Holyoke, but not only does he have to share the job by alternating weeks with his sister Lily, but this winter, any time there’s been a school cancellation, it’s been on his week!
Last Tuesday, the big record-breaking snowstorm hit, causing school cancellations state-wide. So, today…. school was on and King excitedly donned his Bright Spot blue therapy dog vest, and with his Reading Buddy book bag packed, he was ready to hit the road for a morning of listening to his kids read stories to him, give him lots of attention, and petting, and brushing (his kids love getting the chance to brush King’s feathers when they finish their reading).
A good therapy dog loves his job. That’s King!
Sorry boy. It’s Lily’s turn next week to work with the kids at the Kelly School. But, King has a new job. Starting tomorrow, he will visit our special hospice patient that Lily met last week. We’ll report on how that went when we get home.
