Kyser and Toby are canine good citizens. They have the certificates to prove it.
Maybe that designation from the American Kennel Club — earned by taking a fairly grueling test — will help them get another citation: best dog in a Christmas performance.
The two pups are part of the Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration, a 10-show production full of holiday cheer that starts Saturday at the Holland Center. They were among more than a dozen dogs who auditioned for a part in the show. Toby, a mixed terrier, and Kyser, a Kerry blue terrier, will alternate performances.
