Six-year-old Richard Langford is all smiles as he concludes his reading session with Caring Canines therapy dog Zip during a Read-2-Rover event at Chesterfield County's Central Library on June 18. According to Richard's mom, he showed no excitement for reading prior to that event. "When he heard about this program, he wanted to come to the library at 8 o'clock this morning," she said. "I had to remind him that it was tonight, but he still wanted to come really early so he wouldn't miss it." Also pictured is Lisa Godfrey, Zip's owner and a certified dog trainer. The two will be participating in the Read-2-Rover program that's being introduced at the Fort Lee Community Library on July 15.
