Feather & I were privileged to initiate the first Santa Maria Valley Humane Society’s “Hear a Story, Read a Story” program. Following hearing Feather’s story from her book, “The Brown Paper Bag,” the children simulated Feather’s Grand Champion Race & watched Feather perform tricks. The children then read their favorite books, to the mutual delight of children & canines, that they had brought from home. As you can see these adoptable, well-cared for animals loved the experience. kudos to Hilda, Kira & the SMVHS staff for this wonderful & inspirational program.
