The cuddly dogs we all love are back for one last session this semester Tuesday and Wednesday, from 12 to 1 p.m., outside Moffitt Library.

This isn’t just a rare occurrence during dead week. Every semester, on the first Tuesday of the month, the UHS Tang Center arranges a Pet Hug event with Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation. According to the UHS website, studies show interaction with companion animals lowers blood pressure and reduces anxiety (which is something we all need).

Even if you haven’t started stressing about finals yet, Pet Hug is a great way to get some love and add some variety to what we’re sure is going to be a long week ahead of you. If you’re still not convinced, just take a look at some of these adorable dogs:
