Hang Tough.

As the school year winds down for folks of a certain age, final exams are in full swing.

It's a stressful time, to be sure. For that reason, a British school set up a puppy room during its finals last week, where, for a small fee, students could go and alleviate some stress by cuddling a room full of mutts.

Even for the grown folk among us, it can be a busy time of year, too. And, fortunately, puppy rooms don't always have to be literal. Case in point, there's loads of metaphorical “puppy rooms” that can be found all over town this week, if you're looking for little temporary escapes.
