Puppy love: Tulanians adore their pets

Tulanians love showing off their canine companions. After requesting that members of the Tulane community share photos showcasing their furriest family member, the New Wave received several submissions just in time for Valentine’s Day. Today’s infographic, designed by Marian Herbert-Bruno, displays our favorite entries. Sit, stay and continue reading for details behind each Tulanian and their dog.
