It's #MascotMonday! This week’s mascot is Sophie, submitted by Ruth Milstein, DNP, assistant professor in the Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions. Sophie (full name: Grand Champion Timber Oaks Sophie es Linda, FDC, CA, RATO, DJ, CGC) is the No. 7 Spanish water dog in the U.S. and competed in the Westminster Dog Show this year. “She is 3 1/2 years old and almost blind, but that hasn’t slowed her down. She dock dives more than 18 feet, competes in barn hunting and rally and several other sports. She recently passed her therapy dog testing and Canine Good Citizen rating. She has the sweetest disposition.” To submit your pet for Mascot Monday, send a photo, a sentence or two about your pet, and your affiliation to Brandman University to firstname.lastname@example.org.
