Dozer goes to school: Northwood students read to canine celeb

Published: Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 11:02 AM.

Angie Nousiainen said she had approached school officials several times to receive permission to bring Dozer into area schools.

Over the summer, Northwood's new principal, Dr. Donna Goode, met Dozer while he greeted Walgreens customers — another regular gig — and "she became an instant fan," Nousiainen said.

"When I contacted her and asked about bringing him to school, she was more than willing to go to bat before the school board," Nousiainen said.

Dozer has a been a regular at Crestview Public Library reading programs and visits residents in area rehabilitation and nursing facilities.

Nousiainen said she hopes to one day gain permission to let Dozer visit North Okaloosa Medical Center patients.
