Taken in reasonable amounts, the stimulating chemical may help some people to work more efficiently. However, excessive quantities of caffeine can cause several irritating, unhealthy side effects.

The Austrians, the French, and the Italians have generally been the fastest in international competitions.

Some dogs help police find criminals. Other dogs are trained to sniff out drugs or explosives. Some dogs assist people who are blind, deaf, or have trouble getting around. Dogs that help their owners are called "Assistance Dogs." A very special group of dogs are known as “Therapy Dogs.” These dogs are family pets with special training. The training allows them to go into public buildings and comfort people in need. Some therapy dogs go into places such as hospitals and nursing homes. Other therapy dogs work in schools and libraries. They serve as warm and caring friends to children, but they also do more. In one town in California, therapy dogs have become children’s reading buddies. Children read their favorite book to the dogs. They also talk to the dogs and pet them. The dogs enjoy the attention.The children like reading to dogs because the dogs don’t care if the children get a word or two wrong. When they read to other people, the children sometimes get anxious. They are afraid that they will make a mistake. There is a second benefit. Most of the children who read to dogs don’t have dogs of their own. This gives them a chance to be with a dog for an hour or so. The program is called PAWS. Children like the program. As one student explained, ‘‘I love to read, and I also really love animals.’’ 93.
