GRANGER — Granger Elementary School special education students had the opportunity to spend time and read with certified therapy dogs Oct. 29.

The dogs are owned and trained by Highland Middle School teacher Kelly D’Annolfo and her family, who have worked with the brothers, Bauer and Kai, from the time they were 8 weeks old with the help of Gold Star Dog Training in Medina.

Students petted the dogs, talked to them and showed off their favorite books.
