Reveille, the First Lady of Aggieland and Texas A&M’s official mascot, recently visited the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University as part of Spring Dog Day, an event put on by the Bush School Student Government Association (SGA) and the Bush School Public Service Organization (PSO).
While Reveille was the center of attention at Spring Dog Day, she wasn’t the only dog present. Aggieland Pets with a Purpose brought therapy dogs to the event so that Bush School students could play with the cute critters and relieve stress as finals and the end of the semester approach.
PSO used this opportunity to encourage students to donate old t-shirts that will be made into dog toys and donated to the Bryan Animal Center. Other supplies, such as toys and food, were donated as well.
“It was fun to finally get a picture with Reveille,” said Kaylin Taylor, a second-year student at the Bush School. “This time of year is always stressful, so it was nice to get to take a break and play with the dogs for a little while and give back.”
