Raise the Library Woof: Dogs on Call to Soothe Finals Panic

We’ll let you in on a little secret: sometimes, you can find cute dogs in the library.

Last night, Dogs on Call generously brought four all-star dogs — Charlotte Rose, Raider, Melody, and Murray — to Steenbock Library. Stressed out students facing finals had the chance to ease their worries with some canine attention. You can check out some of the pictures on the Steenbock Library Flickr page!

Did you miss the pups this time around? Dogs on Call will be at College Library on Monday, December 16th, from 4 – 7 p.m. College Library even made buttons featuring Charlotte Rose!

Dogs on Call is a local member of Pet Partners–an organization devoted to improving human health through the existing bond between people and companion animals.
