Quietly offering a warm hug or a wag of the tale, “Dixie loved all of you … never forget that,” read an update on the dog’s Facebook page. After three years on campus, Dixie will be remembered for the sunshine she brought into the lives of the countless TD students she greeted as they came home at night.
