Her bond to Tucker is being strengthened through a program called Vermont Paws & Boots, which trains service dogs to aid military veterans and first responders who need a constant companion for savings that can be life-saving.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury officials will study the prospect of merging the local teen center with the municipal Parks & Recreation Department as a way of giving the youth friendly operation long-term financial and organizational stability.
