COLLEGE STATION (AP) - Friendly therapy dogs have helped some university students in Texas reduce stress as they prepare for finals before the winter holiday break.

The Eagle newspaper reports the nonprofit Aggieland Pets with a Purpose had pooches on hand Tuesday at libraries at Texas A&M University in College Station.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports students at A&M-Corpus Christi ditched their books for a time to play with dogs as part of Paws on the Island. More than 60 students lined up to participate Tuesday at the Mary and Jeff Bell Library.

Volunteers take their specially trained pets on campus several times a week to help students take a break.

Kit Darling with Aggieland Pets with a Purpose says you can tell the eyes of students brighten when they see the animals.
