Meet pretty black and tan 'Jewel,' who hails from the Denver, Colorado, area. Jewel is a dog that us dachshunds can aspire to. See, she earned her therapy dog registration, and then went on to be a literacy dog; she reads with a second grade student once a week in Denver. Woof! The hopes of the program are to "assist kids with basic math, language and reading skills, and encourage them to appreciate education and finish high school. We would like them to go beyond that, to trade school or college." Read all about the therapy and literacy dog program at Examiner.com.
