Baarlo the therapy dog has been helping OSU students during finals week at the University Libraries’ Pause4Paws events for the past 3 years and has also been attending BuckeyeThon the last 2 years, giving joy to the participating students and the children they are raising money for. He helped comfort students and staff on campus immediately following the November tragedy and for several days after the event (at the Thompson and 18th Avenue Libraries, several Engineering and Aerospace buildings and at the Student Academic Services building). Baarlo also helps local hospice patients and children who are behaviorally challenged.
Earlier this year Baarlo was diagnosed with lymphoma and has been getting treated at OSU Veterinary Medical Center. With their expert help Baarlo has been #BuckeyeStrong and in remission and is able to continue to do his therapy work to help OSU students and staff stay #BuckeyeStrong. This is a wonderful story of Buckeyes helping each other stay strong in the face of adversity!
Go Bucks and Go Baarlo!
