Fact: Dogs decrease Stress


It’s ironic that this week is “de-stress” week at the Wisconsin Law School…because it has by far been the most stressful week of my semester so far. Shaun’s jet-setting off to Florida with his best man in a few hours. (Ok…that’s not entirely true. They’re driving. But still.) We made some hard, but necessary decisions regarding the future this week. School work is piling up, and finals are 3 weeks away at this point. I need a break, time to relax…something.

Thank goodness for stress therapy dogs.

Today over lunch, the law school brought in stress therapy dogs from Dogs on Call. All I have to say is there is nothing like a waggly tail and those big puppy eyes to bring just a little cheer back into otherwise gloomy days. It also reminded me that I’m ever so impatiently waiting until Shaun and I can finally get our own little furbaby this summer…but that little pang of sadness was remedied by the reassuring fact that in the not so distant future, I will be greeted by a waggly tail and puppy eyes when I get home every night. (Or maybe just a wiggly butt…most corgis don’t have tails.)
