We've parted ways with Mama Dog. For a long while, out of habit, our eye will wander the lanes and grass and steps of the college for her familiar silhouette. "Where is Mama Dog, don't see her today."
Was it age or character that made her so serene? We projected our emotional flings onto a simple dog. Many cared for her, many cared deeply. A campus mainstay, a living one, is gone.
Rest in peace, Mama.
