I had told them that Tigger would do much better if there was a pet in the room. We were discussing hamster or turtle but we left it up to the teacher's discretion since she would be the one who needed to touch it every day. They got a THERAPY DOG!!!!!! The dog comes every Monday. They are starting out with a 1 hour visit and they will be having him stay longer as they all get use to each other until he is there 4 hours every Monday Tigger and I are both thrilled.
