Perhaps unsurprisingly, all of us at CLiF share a passion for literacy. The other passion almost all of us share? Dogs. Yes, we’re big fido fans here at CLiF (Canine Lovers, in Fact) headquarters, where resident dog Yoshi is queen, but happily shares her turf with visiting tail-waggers. Our doggy colleagues make frequent guest appearances on our Zoom calls, join us on team outings, and know which of our dedicated volunteers to hit up for pats and treats.

While dog appreciation occurs daily at CLiF, in celebration of National Dog Day, we’re giving our pups the spotlight they deserve. In keeping with our children’s literacy mission, each furry friend has selected (okay, we chose for them) a favorite work of canine literature to share. Without further ado, meet the dogs of CLiF!
