It's a new trend for law schools to bring dogs to the school during exam periods as a form of stress relief for the law students. UVA does not have this policy, but luckily for Mom, she has 24/7 access to two awesome therapy dogs, Steve and me! I know it is very good therapy for her when I stand on her chest while she sleeps, or when Steve knocks the lamp off the night stand and it crashes to the floor at 3AM, or when she's trying to read and we wrestle very loudly. She would never make it through law school without us, that is for sure.
In an effort to show what good dogs we are, we posed for some pictures yesterday. Of course, we couldn't have a picture where both of us were smiling in the same picture. That wouldn't be therapeutic for mom at all.
