Remy provides some remedy at W-WG

There is a low gate in front of the entry to Loy Woelber’s office in the Westbrook-Walnut Grove High School in Westbrook.

This is where children come to interact with Remy, a therapy dog which Woelber describes as beyond special.

“Remy is like one out of a hundred dogs,” said Woelber. “She’s a fluke. She was not trained in anything, but she just turned out to be perfect.”

Remy rides to school with Woelber every day but also visits children at the Alternative Learning Center in Windom on occasion and visits at the school in Ivanhoe once a week. Nothing rattles Remy and as a 1.5 year old Aussiedoogle puppy, she should be exploding with energy.

No. She’s almost preternaturally calm, says Woelber.

“I grew up on the farm, and I’ve been through a lot of dogs,” said Woelber, “but I’ve never had a dog like Remy.
