A long line of dog lovers waited patiently for the pups to arrive and cheered loudly as they stepped off the elevator with their volunteer handlers. Over 250 members of the TWU community visited the dogs, eagerly taking to the floor to pet the animals, chat with the volunteers, and experience some of the abundant stress-relieving magic the canine/human teams seemed to possess--just what many TWU students seemed to need in the middle of their Spring 2015 final exams.
