Bow wow! Meet Sesame Street's new pooch

Hurrah for Brandeis, the latest furry creature to join the cast of Sesame Street, a yellow Labrador retriever. This being Sesame Street, he is not just any old canine; Brandeis is a service dog, there to teach children that some people have special circumstances and need a bit of extra help. In his debut he starts his training, learning how to open drawers, turn on lights, and pick up and collect things.
