OTISFIELD – Kindergarten student Caleigh Gallant wondered why two video cameramen and two still photographers were in her class Thursday.

“Because we’re special,” teacher Angie Craib responded with a smile.

CBS Weekend News Producer John Mondello, based in New York, saw a story about Rudy, the school’s therapy dog, on the Sun Journal’s Web site from Oct. 20 and decided to fly in from New York to check it out for himself. He spent Thursday morning at the school.

The students in that room had learned to read and write using the 4-year-old Irish Setter who belongs to Principal Linda “Parkaroo” Park.

The story is set to air nationwide sometime within the next two weeks, either on a Saturday at 6:30 p.m. or Sunday at 6 p.m.
