COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M wants to find a canine
to replace Reveille VII, a 7-year-old collie who retired at the end
of the spring semester as the school's mascot.
"We are still engaged with a number of training organizations
to find the right fit for the next Reveille," Assistant Vice
President for Student Affairs Kevin Jackson said Friday in an
e-mail to the Bryan-College Station Eagle.
Jackson said it was too early to say when the next dog would be
selected or what breed she would be.
Reveille is described on the Texas A&M Web site as "the first
lady of Aggieland, is the official mascot of Texas A&M University.
She is the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets, and she
is a Five-Star General."
