Dachshunds Who Make A Difference

Meet black and tan longhair 'Tipper,' who hails from Land O' Lakes, Florida. Tipper is a therapy dog who also helps the kids read in her human's third-grade classroom at Oakstead Elementary School. Wow! All we do is sit around the house. Here's an excerpt about Tipper from The St. Petersburg Times: Tipper sure seemed to be paying close attention as 8-year-old Kayla Brackett read to her in rhyme. The book was aptly named Dog Poems, and the long-haired dachshund sat with Kayla in a comfortable corner in her master's third-grade classroom. And while it seemed Tipper loved the stories, it was really the Cheerios that won her over. Kayla kept the treats hidden in her tightly clenched fist underneath the book.
Read all about Tipper and the reading program at The St. Petersburg Times. Woof, Woof!
