Auggie the doggie, the therapy dog the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club is helping fund at Bell Top Elementary School in East Greenbush, is keeping very busy.
Jaime Gibbs, school counselor at Bell Top and Columbia High School and one of Augie’s chief handlers, tells us today, “Our friend Auggie is doing great at school! I keep his blog/website updated regularly and hope you’ve been able to keep track of his progress there.
“We now have our spring apparel up for sale, including a very special T-shirt for Auggie which has his donors listed on the back. You might want to check it out. It is another way we can thank all of the donors, like the SRC Rotary, for their generous contributions to our therapy dog in training. All money raised through the sale of these shirts goes back to his fund, too.”
As part of his training to take the therapy dog international test this summer, Auggie has daily practices and weekly training sessions for preparation.
