Canton, NY, Dec 16, 2011 — This has been one of the busiest and most stressful weeks of the year for students at area colleges. It's finals week, right before the holidays. Faculty and staff at St. Lawrence University took some time recently to share their dogs' love with students to help ease the stress.
Golden labs, beagles and mixed-breed mutts were among the canine therapists on campus last Friday. They performed simple tricks, chased toys and enjoyed occasional treats with the students. Our intern, Roger Miller, is a senior at St. Lawrence. He mingled with the pack of dogs and students in Gunnison Chapel during a study break for today's "Heard Up North."
