Kalani, an American black Labrador Retriever, looks at Mattie, a 7-year-old English black Labrador Retriever, while being read to at Read "Fur" Fun at the McHenry Public Library on Saturday, July 2, 2016. The program was for children who are starting to read, are reading and would like to practice reading, or want to be comfortable reading out loud. Children could read to a licensed therapy dog or simply just cuddle with a dog. The program also gives mentors the opportunity to interact with children as well. Read "Fur" Fun has been running for 8 years.
