Rory Fall 2011

I got my dog Rory in the summer of 2011 and she lives with me in edinboro. She is a handful but definitly a good outlet to get my mind of school when it is time to relax. I love animals, but dogs especially for that reason, they always can put you in a better mood or relax you when you are stressed.   Dogs are also used in the education feild for many reasons.  Recently many organizations have brought dogs onto college campuses to help students cope with stress and depresion in a positive and healthy way.  Yale University for example has a library where of course books can be rented but also dogs can be "borrowed" for short periods of time to relax and have some play time with a pup.  Many other schools are adopting these sorts of programs and the students and dogs seem to be benefiting from it.

Here at Edinboro therapy dogs are not a rare sight.  These companions help students on campus with disabilities.
