Rent-a-Pup

Law school is stressful. Everyone knows that. I imagine it must be particularly stressful to be a law student at the country’s top ranked program. But don’t worry: if you are at Yale, or plan to go there, your stress may be relieved by a fluffy mop of fur. That’s right: in addition to being able to check out library books at the library, you will also be able to check out a dog for a play period of 30 minutes.

Other details: the dog’s name is Monty (aww); he’s hypoallergenic (how thoughtful); and he will be kept in a non-public space in the library, the New York Times reports.

“We will need your feedback and comments to help us decide if this will be a permanent ongoing program available during stressful periods of the semester, for example, during examinations,” a note to students said, according to the Times, which notes this will be a three-day trial.

More surprising? Yale is not the first to try this idea. The Times notes that other universities—like the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh—have similar ongoing programs.

One law professor seemed confused by the idea, telling the Times: “I’ve always found library books to be therapeutic. But maybe that’s just me.”

Well, now, there’s a bizarre concept: taking books out of the library.

For a moment, though, I smiled, thinking: well, borrowing a dog for 30 minutes sounds great for a busy person who just wants to hang out for a little bit. Why don’t more places have this?

Then I realized you could do the same thing any time at your local animal shelter.
