Rocky the Reference Dog

The Fitzgerald staff tried something new during finals this year–a therapy dog.  Colleges and universities across the country are providing students with the unique stress relief that a dog can offer.  Students passing through the library on Saturday December 14th were able to pet and generally establish warm relationships with Rocky the Reference Dog, a five year old Golden Retriever.

 Both students and dog appeared to be enjoying the experience a great deal.

Next semester we hope to offer more such bonding experiences in the library.
