Peter Blidy, 6, of McHenry, pets as he reads to Payton, a 2-year-old light Golden Retriever, 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.
