On Thursday, October 4, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Eunice (LCC Staff) and Asher (Faith Lutheran – Lake Forest, Illinois) attended Family Literacy Night at Coventry Elementary. The event included a variety of literacy activities including reading to the Comfort Dogs. The principal said total attendance was 450 people.
There was a very high demand for “Reading with the Comfort Dogs” and so they limited the sign-up and restricted each child to a 3 minute session. Each dog was only able to handle about 30 sessions within the 90 minute event. It was a fun evening and the Comfort Dogs look forward to attending it again.
