puppy room is the best idea ever! everyone should have them!!!
 
2012-12-03 11:04:40 AM
Psh, that's old news. My school had puppies from a local shelter on Friday and we could play with them outside.

I think campus orgy rooms would be a better idea.

Until you see who actually shows up for said orgy...

Dalhousie would probably combine these two ideas.

I hope they aren't dead. Dead puppies aren't much fun.

Bullshiat. Finals are stressful. Deadlines are stressful. Jobs are stressful. Lives are stressful. It's all farking relative. Then some of us have to combine all of the above. Just because it isn't what you call stressful doesn't mean it isn't stressful for the rest of us

once again, Rent-A-Dog is there to meet your needs. 1-800-Rent-A-Dog. when you absolutely, positively need a puppy.

I need a roomful of puppies..or kittens. or puppies AND kittens! and tiny baby bunnies!

Maslow's hierarchy of needs explains this nicely. Every gripe that any of us could honestly muster on this forum pales in comparison to the problems faced by billions of other people in this world. Does that mean that we're just a bunch of candy-asses? No. Our expectations evolve with our standard of living.

I'm sitting with my dog in my office, getting a kick out of my good fortune.

If I'm going to go to a room full of puppies to de-stress, they'd better not be talking about dogs.

/'cause you get in trouble for motorboating dogs.

Puppies can work for anything.

Fight with your girlfriend? ....bring in the puppies.

NHL labor talks break down? ....bring in the puppies.

Dems and Reps can't agree on fiscal cliff issues? ....bring in the puppies.

Serial killer can't stop killing? ....bring in the puppies. Unless he kills puppies on the side.

Having a couple of tests you had months to study for and guides that explain exactly what is going to be on the test? Sounds ruff.

Why do you need puppies to get rid of your stress?

The fastest way I've found to get rid of stress is to take $15 of Del Taco and a handle of something cheap to one of the sorority houses...

Someone's going to have to sweep up the puppy bombs after they leave.

How about proper HVAC at the Sexton campus I think not being frozen and roasted withing the same day would go a long way towards improving morale.

For values of "getting rid of stress" approaching "causing explosive diarrhea..." Seriously, El Pollo Loco would be a better choice, barely.

And for those who are insufficiently stressed and need to get psyched up for exams, there will be an alternative room with a moose.

I am a bit disappointed by the misleading article. An eleven year old miniature collie is not a room full of puppies.

Hey, snowflakes, you don't know what stress is.


I would imagine that a cash strapped, loan laden student today facing bleak job prospects (both summer and long term) knows their fair share of stress.

15 minutes with a puppy is not really any different than 15 minutes of escapist TV, drinking or hobo murdering. Right?

1) Put their guts in a box and put them in a drawer
2) forgot all about it for a month and a half
3) look in the drawer and start to laugh

I don't know about that... Finals week was always extremely stressful for me. Big papers/projects to wrap up, massive tests to cram for... I'll still occasionally wake up from a nightmare where it's 10pm and I have a huge paper due the next day.

So true.
My puppy died late last fall, he's still rotting in the hall.

Sorry, read that as puppy bread... That sounded quite delicious. A crispy loaf stuffed with olives and puppies dipped in honey,,,

The only question I want answered is, do I get to choose how mine's prepared?
 
2012-12-03 01:15:50 PM
There are a lot of times when spending 20 minutes with a puppy or kitten would turn a bad day into a good day.

OTOH: first world problems!
