'Hearts of Gold' Service Dogs Help Students Relax Before Finals Week

Posted: Updated:

Service Dogs were put to work Thursday helping West Virginia University students de-stress.

"Hearts of Gold" Service dogs visited the Mountainlair as part of a "WellWVU" event.

The "ChillWELL" event is designed to helps students relax leading into next week's finals.

Students spent time giving attention and affection to the dogs.

And the dogs seemed to enjoy themselves, too.

"Obviously who can't be happy when they are petting a dog," said Cairna Bode, of WellWVU. "It's just a relaxing sort of thing just to make you smile amongst all of the other stressful things that might be going on these next couple of weeks."

Finger painting, Play-Dough, and even a doctor were also on hand for students. Finals week begins Monday.
