Our Project of the Month

Monty the Story Dog

Monty the story dog is a 13-year old west highland terrier owned by Beaumaris Lions Club vice-president Barry Bruce and his wife Anne.

Monty and his owners were recent guests on the “Lions Hour” on Southern FM community radio and created quite a great deal of interest as to his involvement with children.

Monty attends East Sandringham primary school every Tuesday with his owner, Anne, who is an accredited volunteer and the young primary school students learn to read to Monty “the story dog”.

The story dog project is proving to be an outstanding success with 860 children helped by 172 dog teams in 107 schools throughout Australia and is growing each year.

The photograph shows owners, Barry and Anne Bruce and well known Southern FM community radio announcer, David Kaffey together with Monty making his radio debut.
