I'm going to go out on a limb and say no, no there isn't.
Case in point. Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia has implemented a new "de-stressing" program for their students. What is it, you ask? Meditation hours in the quad? Rainforest music played through the loud speakers? Free massages to all undergrads?
While all of these ideas would be great ones (especially the free massages), that's not the path they've chosen to go down. No, they weren't satisfied to be merely remembered as great when they could be immortalised forever as the most awesome university in the history of awesome universities! But what is this oh so wonderful idea, you ask?
A room full of puppies!
No, seriously, a room full of puppies! How great is that! Dalhousie Uni, you rock!
Apparently the uni decided that the best way to make sure their students don't get so stressed out of their gourds that they go postal on the general population is to provide a room for them to go and interact with therapy dogs. Sounds like a good plan to me! I know I find it impossible to maintain the appropriate levels of homicidal mania needed for a good massacre when I'm cuddling a puppy.
But seriously, those of us with pets already know just how relaxing it can be to interact with something cute and fluffy, and I can only imagine that relaxation increases when you're not responsible for feeding them, grooming them, or handling their poop. When you think about it, it makes you wonder how no one else has cottoned onto this idea before!
I want my work to offer this! On a bad day when the numbers won't add up right, and the clients are being crabby, and I've had to listen to that one guy tell me all about his rash again, I want to know I can go out the back and there is an oasis of canine love waiting for me.
Ah, one can dream, I suppose.
So, Dalhousie Uni, in honour of you're rocking so hard that Stone Henge is saying "What the fuck..." I'd like to award you Kellie's Official Seal Of Awesomeness!
You earned it!
