In the grass at an event, a young man wearing red sunglasses and an Ohio State shirt smiles as he kneels to pet a black dog. The dog seemingly gazes adoringly at him as it slightly licks its gray-speckled muzzle and wears a vest that says “therapy dog.”

Love, no strings attached

Buckeye Paws therapy dogs have snuggled their way into hearts across Ohio State, offering comfort and unconditional affection.

A greyhound lying on a blanket in the grass gets attention and pets from three smiling young women, whose hair is blowing in the wind. The trio holds snacks and cellphones in the hands they’re not using to pet the dog.
