BALTIMORE (WBAL/NBC News) – A service dog graduated alongside his owner last week at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.

The golden retriever, named Chief, stole the show at this year’s UMBC graduation. The school’s mascot also happens to be a retriever.

Erica Haschert, the dog’s owner, says Chief has not only become a fixture on campus but in her life as well.

“He knows my every move before I even think it sometimes. I joke he’s my tattletale on my body. So he lets me know before stuff happens, before usually any of the medical devices can pick it up, which is incredible,” Haschert told WBAL.

As she received her diploma in mechanical engineering, Chief – in his very own custom-made cap and gown – was right by Haschert’s side, as he has always been.
