Asher, a 1-year-old goldendoodle, is ready to go to work as a therapy dog at Jackson-Milton Elementary School. The dog, owned by guidance counselor Christine Ginnis, will join the school staff next year but was introduced Tuesday morning to the enthusiastic student body who lined up to greet and pet him. The dog will be at the school three days per week, allowing students — and staff — to de-stress and decompress when needed. He’ll have his own bed in Ginnis’ office at the school.
