Just try and stare at the above photo without giggling uncontrollably and/or saying “awww” to your computer screen.
As a means of expanding its national profile in its first season as a member of the Atlantic-10, Butler launched a “Big Dawgs Tour” on which its bulldog mascots, Butler Blue II (Blue) and Butler Blue III (Trip), follow the men’s basketball team to its travel destinations.
With the hardwood Bulldogs in our nation’s capital to play George Washington on Saturday, the “Big Dawgs Tour” made a quick stop on Friday morning at Georgetown, which boasts a pair of bulldog mascots of its own in Jack and Jack Jr. The quartet of canines made their way around campus, stopping for photo ops along the way.
Jaded fans will question the point of all of this. The rest of us, on the other hand, will enjoy this for all its worth.
