Storee Wryter and paws4people

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

Today I want to tell you more about therapy dogs and why I decided to write my first book about Kyria Henry and Addie. I didn't know anything about therapy dogs or assitance dogs until I met Kyria and she told me about the paws4peoplefoundation.

I was surprised to learn how smart these dogs are and how much good work they do. Some dogs visit hospitals and nursing homes. Other dogs do home visits with people who are too sick to go out. Some help with grocery shopping and others alert their owners when it's time to take their medicine. In my book, Addie learns to do school visits to help kids learn to read.  What do you think about that? Would you like to have a dog help you learn something? Maybe you already have a very smart dog. If you do, write us a note and tell us all what your pet can do.

To learn more about paws4people click here.There are many organizations that train therapy dogs and I'm going to tell you about one every month. If you know of a therapy dog organization near you send me a link to the website and I'll check it out. If I decide to write about out here I'll send you a free copy of my book, Storee Wryter Gets a Dog.
