Meet Sting, a 10-year-old retired racing greyhound who now works as a certified emotional therapy dog. Part of his duties are to have children practice their reading aloud to him, as part of the Paws To Read program at a local library in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
At his most recent gig however, nobody showed up. No bookings. That prompted his handler, John Muellner, to send out a Facebook post asking if any kiddies were interested in coming by to keep a rather forlorn-looking Sting company for the evening.
The post has since been shared over 100,000 times, and Sting is now a star of the internet! The library has been inundated with requests for readings with Sting, with the Paws To Read program receiving a huge boost in interest. Sting is now sold-out for months in advance.
What was the reason behind the outpouring of sympathy…
