NBC Nightly News here in the US had a report the other night about dogs being used to help low-income kids learn to read. One of the dogs was a Tri. See the video here (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/#26011422).

Very sweet- what a great idea. The Cavalier even gave the little girl a kiss at the end. :luv:

Thanks so much for posting this. It brought back so many memories for me. Our late Duffy was involved in a reading program for learning disabled kids. It was a joy to see the kids' confidence grow week to week as they read to the dog. And the dogs loved it just as much. It's an amazing program.
