The Holy Trinity School Counseling Office is very excited to announce a new pet therapy/literacy dog in partnership with our reading specialist, Dr. Meka Barry. Mrs. Brenda Blincoe, a certified pet therapy handler, and her dog, Midas, are working with some first, second, and third graders in the READ program once a week. Mrs. Blincoe is a former elementary teacher from Holy Spirit. Midas, is a 6-year-old purebred Golden Retriever. He loves children, and is very mellow, gentle, and smart. Midas is certified and insured with Therapy Dogs International. He is clean and well-groomed, and always on a lead and under the control of his handler. He is also up to date on all vaccines. Midas has also passed the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen test-- a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership and basic good manners for dogs. We are very blessed and grateful for their service to Holy Trinity!
