Virginia Tech therapy dog, Epcot, celebrates third birthday

Virginia Tech students are showing their support for a dog that serves.

Dozens came out Friday to help the school’s youngest therapy dog, Epcot celebrate his third birthday.

Since he turned 21 in dog years, mocktails were included, along with other fun activities.

The black lab was added to the team last year, attending various events to comfort and assist Hokies on campus.

“The dogs create a natural connection for humans for each other and so they help bring humans together, and a lot of the kids here miss their dogs from home,” said Trent Davis.

The therapy dogs at Virginia Tech even have their own office hours every week for students to drop in and relieve some stress.
