"I've been wondering what the Hermes Lindy dynamic is going to be like when the new dog meets Buddy and Madge," he said. "It's going to be fun to have three Labs together, with all that bounciness."
Working out of Cipriani's office in the school library, Madge quickly became a favorite with students and staff, especially during finals week, when a wag of the tail and a lick on the face goes a long way toward easing exam jitters.

"She's been a loving companion for Belo and a year round animal therapist for stressed out students," added university librarian Karen Schneider. "If anybody has earned their retirement, it's Madge."
