While Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was meeting with President John J. Degioia and other University officials inside warm Healy Hall, Vox was shivering beyond the DPS barriers, waiting in vain to take a good photo of the Iraqi leader. However, the morning was not a complete bust because we were joined by a truly spectacular German Shepherd Dog.
The canine was part of the U.S. Secret Service team protecting the Iraqi leader during his visit to the United States. If any foolhardy Hoyas had breached security, they would’ve become better acquainted with this elegant yet unforgiving beast.
Vox is going to assume his name is something totally badass, like Gunther, Maximus or Panzer. We didn’t ask him what his name was because that would probably have been the last question we’d ever ask. We’ll call him Khan.
Khan was so cute Vox just wanted to love him up and coo in a baby voice, “Who’s the most ferocious dog in Georgetown? You are! That’s right! Such a fierce wittle puppy!” But he’d probably rip our face off.
More photos of Khan after the jump!
