“This is my dog Rosie. She was born in a shelter in upstate New York. My partner and I fostered the whole litter, so I’ve had Rosie since she was four days old. She’s now thirteen years old, and for the past six years has been working with kids in DC’s elementary schools through a Washington Humane Society humane education program. She’s unfazed by noisy second-graders rushing her in a crowd, screaming “Rosie, Rosie, Rosie!” She keeps her cool, even when kids tell us about their dogs who were stabbed, shot or hit by a car. Rosie radiates love and the kids eat it up.”
