The Lonely Library Dog
Sting the library dog is an ex-racing greyhound turned therapy dog, who visits his local library in Minnesota every week to offer children the chance to practice their reading skills by reading to him. This helps to provide a safe, non-threatening and non-judgmental space for children to practice their reading. Unfortunately however, back in February, Sting was left looking forlorn and alone when nobody showed up to read to him. His owner took to twitter to share his plight and within a few hours floods of twitter users have been asking to come and bring their kids to read to him, and he hasn't been lonely since.
