In the video below, which aired on KIFI-TV, the ABC affiliate in Idaho Falls, we learn the story of Cletus, a service pitbull who recently joined the graduating class of Idaho State University to accept a diploma belonging to his recently deceased owner, Joshua Kelly.

According to the news report, Kelly passed away after complications resulting from a seizure.
