(at right) Eric Chiles reads to Lovey, a 12-year-old golden retriever, during last week's Pup Pals reading session at the Largo Public Library. Looking on is Lovey's owner, Pat Harrington of Golden Retriever Rescue. Reading at left is Eric's sister, Sydney, who is pictured with Becky Westney and reading dog, Cedric, 9. Youngsters aim to improve their reading skills by reading to therapy-trained dogs. The next reading session with the dogs is scheduled September 25. Pre-registration is required. For more information on the Pup Pals reading program, call the Children's Department at 587-6715.
