Reading with Rover

The second Saturday of the month is always a good one at the Oxford Public library, and not just because it’s a Saturday.  The Oxford-Lafayette Humane society will be here at 10:30 for our monthly Reading with Rover project.  Anyone is welcome to come hang out in our children’s area with a cute puppy or dog from the humane society and who doesn’t love that?  But our love goes beyond just a monthly visit; we’d like to share with you our own personal reasons for supporting and appreciating the wonderful people who make our shelter one of the best around.

Cerulean (formerly Mike) is a three year old Pit Bull who found a forever home with our library assistant Stacey.  He was skinny and sick when Stacey first laid eyes on him, but it was love at first sight.  Roo (as his closest friends call him) enjoys long naps, relaxing by the fire and snuggling.  He does not love the snow or the rain but he does love a nice carrot snack and playing tug with his “sister” Cheezburger.

Edie (as in Beale) became somewhat of a celebrity in her young life when she and her 6 brothers and sisters were discovered in a plastic storage bin outside the former humane society after the 4th of July weekend in 2010.  Edie (then known as Henrietta) was the only survivor of her siblings weighing in at 2.5 pounds and covered with skin infections that left her mostly bald.  But that didn’t stop reference librarian Laura Beth from falling for her pretty brown eyes and fighter’s spirit. Now tilting the scale at 30 pounds (mostly attitude and legs) Edie enjoys chewing the couch, wrestling with her big “brothers” and long, well deserved, belly rubs.

And don’t forget that Reading with Rover happens every 2nd Saturday of the month at 10:30.  Come see us!
