Students in the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law recently took a pause from their studies to shake paws on Doggie Day, a twice yearly event held in the spring and fall before exams.
The faculty’s student health and wellness committee put on the event as part of its stress-busting programming. This year, 20 dogs reported for duty and about 200 students got cuddle time with a canine.
U of T News writer and photographer Geoffrey Vendeville was on hand to capture some of the very good dogs that attended law school for a day.
