Chopper listens

Chopper, a service dog, comes by every Monday afternoon to listen to children practice their reading.

As with most such critters, he is completely non-judgmental.

And that seems to be something some kids need when they open a book.

A mom who has two sons, one of whom is starting to read, told me this past Monday that the older one refused to read to her and husband -- until he got comfortable reading to Chopper.

Now, she said, he reads to them all the time.

A real success story.
