The Dog Ate My Homework

Yea, right; and the check’s in the mail. I had to chuckle for a moment after reading about the kid in New York who was denied taking his dog to school.

“GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A public high school has turned away a deaf student's service dog despite a state ruling saying the animal should be allowed.”


“Cave and his family say the teen, who uses cochlear implants, needs the service dog to help with his studies. School officials say they're concerned for other students' and staffers' health and safety.”

I don’t claim to be knowledgeable on the use of service dogs other than for folks who are “sight challenged”. Just what does a hearing impaired person use a dog for that would help in school? I don’t have any jokes about a dog helping at school; somebody, help me out here.
