Todays Daily Dog Tip asks the question of whether a particular dog may be eligible to be a Reading Therapy Dog. The Daily Dog Tip goes on to aver that dogs do not know how to read the written word.
I, Mulligan, beg to differ.
All the dogs that have been denizens at the Mulligan Compound have taught the Lads to read. It remains to be seen, of course, if Pennie and Sophie shall teach the Wee Lass to read, but certainly they are working on the task.
Nightly, from the time of Samson, to Tyler, to Mulligan, and now the mantle has been passed to Pennie and Sophie, story time must take place. How could Mom possibly have story time without the Incumbent Dog?
Samson taught Oldest Lad to Read.
Tyler taught Middle Lad to Read, and pre-reading skills to Little Lad.
I, Mulligan, taught Little Lad to read.
Pennie and Sophie are working pre-reading skills with Wee Lass.
Dogs not understanding the written word? I must aver that the proof is in the readers.

Mom glanced at your title and thought you had written an expose of the dogs in the city that she works in...she's so simple...
