Even though Trinity’s official mascot is LeeRoy the Tiger, for a while in 2012 there was another furry face on campus that was almost as familiar: Jurgens the dog, an explosives detection trainee adopted jointly by Campus Publications and David Tuttle, dean of students. It all started when Katharine Martin, coordinator of Student Activities and Student Edited Publications, brought one of the puppies that students were posing with in yearbook photos to David Tuttle, dean...
