Puppy power comes to Panola

Puppy power comes to Panola

Gannon Ivy takes time out from his studies to visit with Elvis, the Golden Retriever Therapet, who was visiting the M.P. Baker Library Friday. Ivy is a bullrider on the Panola College Rodeo Team.

Petting a dog is a known stress-reliever, so once again, Panola College is offering a little pet therapy during finals. Gina Smith will have Elvis and Bugsy, Golden Retriever Therapets, in the library on Friday, Dec. 6 and Monday, Dec. 9. She will arrive at 9 a.m.

The library will be open until midnight Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 8-10, so that students can study for exams. Sodexo is providing free coffee during these extended study hours.
