Pet Therapy in Zelnick

Holly Everett ’15 writes in about an event I’ve spent literally five months looking forward to:

Sign House and Writing House invite you to play with some dogs.

Tails of Joy therapy dogs will be hanging out in Zelnick this Sunday. Come play with them; it’ll be good for your health.

Photo Evidence: Therapy Dogs Come to Zelnick

Puppies on Fountain, puppies on Vine, puppies on Warren, puppies on Pine. Puppies on Hodgekiss, puppies on Hodgekiss, puppies at the corner of Wyllys and High. Puppies with us and puppies with them, puppies at Zelnick at 4 p.m.

Okay, they weren’t technically all puppies, but the parody doesn’t work so well otherwise. Bringing the best new event to Reading Week since chronic lung damage, Holly Everett ’15 and the rest of Sign and Writing Houses seemed to think student stress levels warranted bringing “6 lovely, cuddly dogs” to campus for pet therapy. The dogs hailed from Tails of Joy,  a nonprofit affiliate group of Intermountain Therapy Animals based in Manchester, Connecticut, and they chilled in Zelnick for two hours on Saturday, greeting gushing Wesleyan students and generally acting like adorable, meticulously trained therapy dogs.  A few images from the historic interspecies mingle appear below.

Yes, stressed out students, you read the heading of this post correctly. The incredible Holly Everett ’15 sent us the best event ever:

We will have 6 lovely, cuddly dogs available for you to play with to lower your reading week stress level. Come by with your friends and enjoy these trained therapy dogs from Tails of Joy. Sponsored by Sign House and Writing House.

Pre-Vet Lunch Tomorrow

Thought: was this event planned to take place on Veteran’s Day, just to mess with me and everyone else who as a kid was convinced Veteran’s Day is a celebration of veterinarians? Anyway, get “set-up in tha DFC” with Emily Duane ’12 and fellow pre-vet students:

Are you thinking about a career in veterinary medicine? Join us for lunch at Daniel Family Commons this Friday at 12pm to discuss volunteer and internship options with other animal-oriented students and the awesome health professions advisor Peggy Carey Best.  You can bring your own lunch or taste the offerings of Daniel Family Commons .  Please RSVP to pcbest(at)wesleyan(dot)edu if you plan to attend.
