    Hello, I recently read the article in the Hutt News and was very impressed. I have a greyhound, Leroy, and think he would be perfectly suited for this task as we have done some therapy work in retirement homes. Is there a program in the wellington region and, if not, can we get one going?

      Hi to Leroy the greyhound! Roo suggest you have a chat to your local library and see what can be done. Reading dogs are awesome. 🙂
