Oh my goodness, this article warmed my heart! While college is not always the best time for everyone to have a dog (although there are TONS of great college student/dog owners out there!), students can really benefit from even a little canine loving. Another great way to relieve some stress and get some doggie fun in while doing something wonderful for your community? Volunteer at your local shelter! It only takes an hour or so out of your day, and both you and the dogs there will feel much better!
