Our furry friend Bing is one of the therapy dogs who visits our library often for Tail Waggin’ Tutors. While she has been at home these past few months, his owner had a friend make some coloring pages of Bing and his brothers for us to share with our young patrons. They are posted here on our Crafts & Activities page for you to download and color! There will be a new page available each week this summer, for a total of ten pages.
Bing was rescued by GRIN (Golden Retrievers In Need) when he was 5 months old and was adopted a month later when he was 6 months old. Bing attended formal dog training with his owners, and three days after he turned one year old, he passed both his TDI (Therapy Dogs International) and CGC (Canine Good Citizen) tests on the same day! Bing visits the Cleveland Clinic and a few libraries in the area, including the Hudson Library.
Nugget is Bing’s older brother, and he is also a therapy dog at local hospitals. Nugget loves to carry his leash in his mouth and stays right with his owners when walking at the local park. His owner calls him a natural therapy dog – everyone loves Nugget, and he loves everyone right back!
Casper is Bing’s other brother, and is “the sweetest boy” as his owner calls him. He loves people and dogs. Casper is not a therapy dog, but someday he would like to be a search-and-rescue dog!
A big thank you to Bing’s, Nugget’s, and Casper’s owner, Amy, for sharing these coloring pages with us. We are excited to see Bing back at the library, when Tail Waggin’ Tutors is able to start up again!
