It's back to school for retriever Sadie
space
Sadie has gone back to school.

The great little golden retriever, cherished by Tammy Guenthner of Summit Lake, spent a recent afternoon visiting with four-year-old kindergarten students at East Elementary School encouraging reading and being an all-around “good dog.”

Sadie's handler is the mother of Courtney Burger, who teaches the four-year-old program at East, so that made it an easy choice to have the therapy dog-in-training visit the class.

“She needed experience in learning to sit and behave,” Burger said. “And this is a great way to encourage the students to look at and share books.”

Sadie got some lessons in manners and so did the students, making it a win-win for all involved.

“Anything that can make the reading experience more memorable for students is a great thing,” Burger said. “Having a visitor like Sadie gives them a purpose. It keeps them motivated and interested.”

The day was a great success, according to all involved. Sadie got some valuable face time with students, adding to her therapy dog resume, and the students...well..they got Sadie for a time.

“Any way we can get our students excited and motivated about learning is a good thing,” Burger said.”Sadie certainly did that.'
