    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.

    That is so awesome!!! I was wondering though....have you looked into and would he qualify to get one full time for him?

    Wow!! That is fantastic!! Even at Department of Juvenile Justice they have small pets in the science calssrooms and it is beneficial, at least for my son. But a therapy dog- wow!
