Nobody Showed Up To Read For This Old Library Dog

Sting is a 10-year-old retired racing greyhound who now works as a certified emotional therapy dog. Children practice their reading aloud to him at a local library in Minnesota as part of the Paws To Read program.  The children improve their reading skills and Sting enjoys it too. When nobody showed up to his recent gig his handler, John Muellner, posted on Facebook asking children to keep the lonely dog company for the evening.

The post was shared over 100,000 times, and the library has been inundated with requests for readings with Sting, with the program receiving a huge boost in interest. Sting is now sold-out for months in advance.
