Reading to animals improves reading skills

My two puppies Bailey and Teddy graduated from their Canine Obedience class with flying colors! This is the first step to getting them to the status of “Canine Citizens,” which means they’re allowed to accompany me to schools, libraries and hospitals for book readings to children.

In the meantime, I’ve been coming up with ideas for incorporating raw and dehydrated gluten-free foods into some darn good recipes.
