It’s time to paws for a study break as the Good Dog Foundation, which provides animal-assisted therapy services to more than 315 partner facilities in four states, returns to Pace’s Westchester Campus to help provide some stress relief prior to the start of exams. That’s right, we’re talking about six hours to pet, hug, high-five, and get your face licked by the best friend anyone could ask for. Normally we’d say there’s enough puppy to go around, but we’d get there early to ensure a pawesome time.
