Talking Awesome Therapy Dog Experience

For those of you that don't know, my dog, Grant, is a certified therapy dog that goes to work with me at the library to work with kids.

We had some developmentally disabled kids in for story time on Friday. One little girl was giving her sign for "dog." So, one of the teachers brought her over to see Grant. The teachers were excited, as this little girl apparently doesn't communicate much. For her to sign for something was excellent. The girl came over and spent time with Grant. She pet him, and he gave her some doggie kisses. She loved it!

Then it was time for them to go, and her teacher told her to tell Grant goodbye. The girl looked at Grant, waved and said, "Bye bye!" The teacher was all choked up. She said that this was HUGE, and that she doesn't talk. She said that they probably wouldn't hear another word from her for the next six months. I don't know if she was exaggerating or if her speaking was really that rare.

They asked about Grant making visits to their classroom, which I am sure that I can arrange.
