Talking Dog Visits Burlington Library


A very popular yellow dog made a stop at Burlington’s Public Library yesterday to surprise her fans.

“Martha Speaks” is a popular children show on Iowa Public Television. Our own Savanna Evans asked 7-year-old Riley Villont to tell her about the tv show…

Villont also told us what she likes most about the show…

Dozens of young kids got the chance to hug, take pictures, and play rock paper scissors with the beloved talking dog. Each child was also given a cup of alphabet soup– the food that makes Martha talk.

Today she will make an appearance at the Keokuk Public Library from 3:30-4:30pm.
