Dog with and Important Job

I see Sophie most mornings on my way to work. She greets the students enthusiasticly - at the same time takes her job very seriously. She and Cliff live one town over and Sophie has been crossing students for about a year now. They were featured on CNN and I thought I would post the video. It's fun to see a dog who so clearly enjoys her job. It warms my heart to watch her and she's very popular in town.

I love it! The kids must love to have a canine crossing guard. We have a canine crossing guard to greet the kids in my small town but she does not have her own STOP paddle.
