That is right, it took 12 people to find a dog mascot for Texas A&M.

The 16-month-old dog from Ohio was originally named Twix before being chosen as the ninth Reveille, according to the A&M student paper The Eagle.

The dog traditionally serves as the highest ranking member of the school's Corps of Cadets, and if she happens to bark in class, that session is to be canceled.
