The guide dog Griffin received a diploma of higher education from the American University of Clarkson, along with his owner Brittany Hawley. A 25-year-old American uses a wheelchair, and a golden retriever goes to all lectures and practical exercises with her.

Hawley received a master’s degree in ergotherapy (medical field in the daily care of patients), so Griffin was awarded an honorary diploma in the same discipline. “I pushed for him to graduate from Day One. He did everything I did,” said the girl.

Hawley has chronic pain from birth, so she constantly uses a wheelchair. Griffin opens the door to her, turns on the light, delivers objects, and also helps to endure the disease, due to which the girl often falls into depression. At university, the dog was praised for “extraordinary efforts” and “hard devotion” towards the student.
