Everyone probably remembers the stress of “finals week” in high school.
Finals Week just occurred for students at Buena Vista High School, and students there had the option to avail themselves of some stress relief via therapy dogs, whose owners volunteered to bring them to the school.
Several students who were headed to their final exams took advantage of the emotional soothing provided by petting the dogs on hand and in some cases, students replaced worried looks with relaxed smiles as they headed into testing time.
