In our first annual Oracle Faculty Dog Power Rankings, we have a tie for sixth place! Luna Collier and Duke Handelsman both finished with 108 votes. The fact that these two Woodberry staples tied is fitting. Their dads, Mr. Andrew Handelsman and Mr. Drew Collier ’03, have led the Woodberry in Spain group for years now and consider their dogs “common law [married], soulmates, bff, you name it.” Here are the dogs that co-occupy the No. 6 spot.
