CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

UPI reports:

A pack of service dogs in training were treated to a performance of a Canadian theater’s live musical as part of their preparation for service. A photo of the dozen eager canines sitting in the theater seats went viral when Ontario’s Stratford Festival shared it on Twitter, and the head trainer for K-9 Country Inn Working Service Dogs said the performance of Billy Elliot: The Musical was part of the dogs’ training. Laura MacKenzie said the theater outing was part of the two-year training program designed to help the canines keep their calm amid crowds, unusual lights and loud noises.
