Tyra the Reading Dog Honored on Tennessee Billboard

Tyra was an active participant in the Children Reading to Dogs program for three years and she also visited multiple nursing homes in the area

We're proud to share that Rottweiler Tyra, owned by Karen Riddle, an AKC judge, past delegate to the AKC and Rottweiler breeder, is featured on a billboard promoting the Kingsport (TN) Public Library children's reading program.  

Karen says, "We met so many wonderful people and kids through this reading program." Tyra sadly passed away on February 6th, but her happiness and dedication to serving the kids and other residents of Kingsport will live on every time someone sees this billboard.

For local drivers, the billboard is located at the intersection of Wilcox Drive and Lincoln Street in Kingsport, Tennessee.
