The honorary degree came as a surprise to Díaz Benítez and the dog, but the graduating class agreed to present such honor to the dog because after all, she too attended all necessary classes to earn the degree.

The honor was made official, after the guide dog’s photograph was printed along her graduating classmates. Other graduates said the distinction is nothing short of what the dog deserves. Idena was the most attentive pupil of the graduating class.
