Therapy Dog Mayzie Visits Chadron Primary School

First grade students have been studying about service animals for their Reading unit and had a special visitor this week.  Dr. Julie Downing was able to bring Mayzie for a visit to Chadron Primary School to talk about the ways Mayzie can help people.  This sweet therapy dog was a rescue animal Dr. Downing adopted and has trained.  The students and staff were beyond excited to have Dr. Downing and Mayzie visit and we want to send a HUGE thank you to Julie for spending her lunch hour visiting with our students.  We sure hope Mayzie can visit again soon!
