The next dog was Rusty, anoth er female, donated to A&M by Tom Westbrook, veteran student from Waco. Another black dog she wasn’t around long enough to be come popular before she died. Another unofficial mascot was Spot, a black and white spotted dalmatian. His fame stemmed from a plunge from the top of Kyle Field during a football game when he broke both front paws. He recovered from this long enough to run under the wheels of a car. During the Fall Elections of 1951 students asked for another dog to fill the void left by the ever- mourned Rev. I. Arthur Weinert, class of ’00, from Seguin came to the rescue and donated Rev II to A&M in the fall of that year and she was delivered to A&M in January of 1952 when she was 3 months old. Sam Netterville from Beaumont and Larry Hill took over her care during the fall of 1953 and since that time her “regular roommate” has been Netterville. Rev II is an Aggie all the way, except for the fact she seems to like classrooms and hates women. She was regularly enrolled in BA 428 and the professor, Judge S. C. Hoyle placed her name on the rolls and which she would answer to with a bark. A member of the Beaumont Hometown Club she attends all their dances and parties where she is an honored guest.
