Reveille

 
 

Reveille
The most well-known and beloved lady on campus might only be knee-high, but she is frequently sought after for photographs or simply an approving wag of her tail. Reveille VIII, or “Miss Rev, ma’am,” as members of the Corps of Cadets must address the four-year-old collie, is A&M’s furry mascot who brings joy to Aggies who cross her path. “Reveille represents how one person, or in this case, the dog, can bring so many people happiness and make so many people smile,” said Cody Guffey, mascot corporal and sophomore political science major. “Dog is man’s best friend.” The first Reveille, a black and white mutt, arrived in Aggieland in 1931, capturing the hearts of students. Upon her death, she was given a formal military funeral and buried at the north entrance of Kyle Field, so she can always watch the Aggies outscore their football opponents. All Reveilles are given this honor. While the University has also been home to other canine friends, include three-legged Tripod and former University president James Earl Rudder’s bulldog Ranger, Reveille has charmed her way to the top.
