NYC funeral home dog is 1 millionth canine good citizen

Who s a good dog? The American Kennel Club says there are a million of them. The club is announcing Wednesday that a Bernese mountain dog named Fiona recently became its 1 millionth canine good citizen. That includes dogs past and present. Fiona and owner Nora Pavone (puh-VOHN ) had a special reason for pursuing the club s mark of canine comportment. Fiona spends her days comforting people at the Pavone family s Brooklyn funeral home. The club introduced the canine good citizen title in 1989 to promote polite doggy behaviour and responsible pet ownership. Purebred and mixed-breed dogs are eligible, at any age. They take a test that involves sitting, staying and coming when called, as well as such skills as walking through a crowd and accepting pets from a handler-approved stranger.
