Service Dog Got an Honorary "Dog"tor Law Degree!

Amy Jones has a really, really smart dog - and she can prove it: her 6-year-old service dog Skeeter actually has a "dog"tor degree from Baylor University School of Law!

The 6-year-old service dog received an honorary law degree from Baylor University two weeks ago, when his owner, Amy Jones, graduated alongside him.

The black Labrador deserved the degree, Jones said, as he has been present every step of the way over the past two-and-a-quarter years of intensive study.

Baylor University's dean and professors appeared to agree with Jones, as they presented Skeeter with his signed and authorized honorary degree on Saturday, Nov. 8.

"Whereas he is now an older, wiser and even a bit fatter dog; Whereas those who survive Baylor Law School are entitled to all barking rights, entitlements and appearances thereto," Skeeter's diploma reads.

"Therefore, be it hereby decreed that Baylor University School of Law confers upon Skeeter the Labrador this honorary juris 'dog'tor degree." - via Rue The Day
