Brandy and Whiskey help students de-stress
Relax, we're not encouraging students to drink as a means of coping with anxiety (leave THAT to us journalists). No, Brandy and Whiskey are actually two adorable therapy dogs, and they're at McGill University Library December 6 to help stressed-out students unwind during exam period.
I had Brandy and her trainer Harriet in studio, and already I feel soothed. Harriet and Brandy are with Therapeutic Paws of Canada, a non-profit organization of volunteers that provide therapy dogs. The use of therapy dogs on campus is all the rage, and proof that dogs are more than just companions - they're actually good for us. Now if only they had a basset hound on call...
Have YOU or a loved one ever benefited from a therapy animal? I'd love to know your story - leave a comment!
