Is the image in your head like this? If it is, you might like to spend a little more time outside.
I'll bet my bottom that no-one pictured this:

Someone let the dogs out...they're in the library!
Check out this gorgeous article about kids reading to dogs in the Tell Tails Reading Program.
Because, dogs are "non-judgmental listeners."
One of the kids says this about the popularity of the program: “It’s fun because it’s easier to read to dogs than humans. They don’t interrupt, unless they bark because they have to go to the bathroom.”
I'll leave you with that. I'm off to find the dog and read him some of my work in progress. Hope he's liberal-minded. And that he's been to the bathroom.
So please be quiet. The canines are reading.
