iuPaws and Think dogs Murphy and Brewser participated in the “De-Stress Fest” at the IU library on the Bloomington campus on Oct. 15. The event was designed to help students manage their stress levels during midterms. In addition to the dogs, students also made their own stress balls and had the opportunity to get a massage and experience aromatherapy. Murphy and Brewser were a big hit with several students commenting how it was great to see and pet a dog, and that they missed their own dogs back home.
