The Library is a Dog's Best Friend?

Yale University's Law Library recently ran a three day pilot program that allowed students to "check out" Monty the dog. 

Students were allowed to spend 30 minute sessiosn with Monty in a room at the library.  During this time, they were able to play, cuddle, and just relax.  Students reported feeling reduced stress and increased relaxation. 

Personally, I was a little nervous at the idea initially when I was assuming college students were able to take the dog out of the library and bring him home or to the park or something...I'm pretty excited about this idea when I realize how it really goes's genius!
