Learning is light, and ignorance is darkness. Our smaller brothers, who will be discussed, hold the same opinion. Higher education is not always the key to success in life, however, a dog with a master's degree causes surprise and even to some extent delight. Among other things, mentioning that even an animal has received a diploma (and you haven't, haha) is a great way to put a person in their place in an argument.
We have compiled a selection of animals that have received real diplomas for one reason or another.

Police dog Rocco (actually John I. Rocco) received a bachelor's degree in criminal law from Concordia University (US Virgin Islands), as well as the police chief of Seneca County (New York, USA) John McGuire. This is not surprising, because, according to American media reports, the university simply traded documents on higher education: you could buy a diploma for only $ 499. It is noteworthy that Roko "received" 5+ in the discipline "Structure and processes of the American judicial system", while John McGwire — only 4–.
Colby Nolan was not surprised when his college application was considered so good that he was awarded not even a bachelor's degree, but a master's degree in business administration. But to be honest, Colby wasn't particularly worried about it at all, because he's just a cat.
However, his master, a deputy district attorney from Pennsylvania, was much more interested in the academic success of his "son". With the help of such a test purchase, it turned out that you don't even need to be a person to get a master's degree. And the college was fined $ 135 thousand.
The optimal route between two points can be found using mathematical calculations, but Professor Timothy Pennings proved that even a dog is capable of this. When he threw the ball somewhere far away, the route along which his corgi named Elvis ran to his goal exactly coincided with the result of calculations, even if Elvis had to not only run on the ground, but also swim across water obstacles. And as a reward for participating in Professor Pennings' experiment, Elvis received an honorary doctorate degree from Hope College in Michigan.
In 1973, a cat named Kitty O'Malley was able to finish school after her owners sent $ 25 to one of Sharashkin's offices engaged in the sale of fake educational documents. And after Kitty was almost accepted into a completely real college Regiment, but the management of the educational institution quickly discovered the deception and expelled the cat.
Kirsch did not particularly delve into the study of subjects when he attended classes at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Maryland). It is not surprising, since Kirsch is a service dog who accompanied his master Carlos Mora, who was studying for a master's degree in psychiatric counseling. And when Carlos graduated from the university, the educational institution offered to award Kirsch an honorary degree in gratitude for his faithful service to the owner.
Australian comedians from The Chaser's War On Everything have found an original way to make fun of "diploma factories". The owner ordered a degree in medicine from the fraudulent Ashwood University for his dog named Sonny. At the same time, the dog has excellent skills and rich life experience: it digs in garbage cans perfectly, and also sniffs the tails of its relatives. After Sonny's diploma was delivered, the couple went to a very real hospital and tried to get the new doctor to work. Perhaps it is not necessary to talk about what career prospects have opened up for a young graduate.
We are sure that the service dog Samson did not excel in literature or mathematics, but at the same time he graduated from the University of Oklahoma. Here he was trained to become a professional service dog. After two years of working as a therapy dog, he received an honorary degree along with the other three hundred graduates of the university. Yes, he also wore a cap and a robe, shook hands with teachers and received a real diploma on stage.
