3 Dogs With Degrees

Think college has gone to the dogs? Well, in these cases, you’re right.

1. WALLY THE CARETAKER

An Albany TV station reporter’s dog, Wally, received an associate’s from the online Almeda University in 2004. To be fair, the 7-year-old dog was listed on his application in human years: 49. His degree was in childhood development—Wally apparently played well with the reporter’s children—and was proudly posted above his food dish.

2. ROCKO THE COP

In 2007, an Ohio attorney seeking to have his client’s drug charges dropped proved that the police department’s dog, John I. Rocko, had received the same degree as the police chief. Both had a bachelor’s in criminal justice from Concordia College and University (a fake online program in the Virgin Islands). The dog got better grades.

3. SONNY THE PROCTOLOGIST

Also in 2007, Australian TV show The Chaser’s War on Everything snagged a medical degree for one host’s dog, Sonny. The pet, who received his degree from the Pakistani diploma mill Ashwood University, was said to have “extensive experience with deworming pills” and “significant proctology experience sniffing other dogs' bums.”

Can You Find the Doe Hiding Among the Stags?

Dudolf

Gergely "Dudolf" Dudás has a way of turning simple images into mind-numbing puzzles. Look closely at his amazing illustrations of squirrels, snails, and rabbits, and you'll find an object that doesn't belong in each one. This new image from the artist features a doe hiding in a crowd of stags, and it may be one of his toughest brainteasers yet.

Dudolf

Most of Dudolf's hidden image puzzles pair items that look similar. In the image above, the only difference between the doe and the stags surrounding it is the lack of antlers. You may have to study a lot of deer heads before finding the animal that's out of place. If you're feeling impatient, you can check the solution at the bottom of the page.

Dudolf has released many brain teasers inspired by the holidays. Pictures he's illustrated in the past include a sheep hidden among Santas, a snowman among snowflakes, and a panda among snowmen.
