Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! is not something one normally hears during discussion about teaching the "three R's" - reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic.
But soon canines will help kids become literate as part of a READing Paws program that is being formed in Catoosa County.
READing Paws is animal-assisted therapy where kids read to dogs, according to Melissa Holcombe, a social worker with the local school system who is also volunteer coordinator for this program.
