About Me:

Hello! I’m Blue2, the official mascot of Butler University. Just thinking back off the top of my furry head, some of the obvious things that come to mind are my appearances at Butler sporting events. Whether it's leading the football team onto the field, greeting the starters on the basketball court, doing my "tricks" during a timeout at center court, or serving as the halftime entertainment at a soccer match where I displayed my own soccer techniques, those are all great instances where I steal the show. Of course, there's more than athletic events, there's also the performing arts. I've been a part of the limelight at several events such as YMCA Geneva Stunts, YMCA Spring Sing and JCFA's REJOICE! where the students sang "Blue Christmas" and I came out on stage riding a sleigh with Santa Claus. I also make appearances at university/campus events for University Advancement, Admissions, Student Affairs, and much more. Basically, I do it all. If you are on campus, be sure to stop by my office and bring me some treats!

Sneak Preview, Weather, and Flatulence

If you’re in the Butler database, meaning you get the Butler Magazine
and other great materials, then chances are a very handsomely packaged
DVD will be hitting your mailbox soon, if it hasn’t already. The Office
of University Advancement is sending out this DVD to nearly all Butler
constituents. It was produced and created by CMC Media Group in Indianapolis and contains three chapters.

The
main chapter is a great piece that highlights the past, present and
future of Butler and is the key feature of the piece, but in my biased
opinion, the best chapter is the one about me!

And you’re in luck as I’ve got the clip about me to show as a special sneak preview; exclusive to my blog and BlueTube.
So now you don’t even have to wait for the DVD to show up to your home.
(But when it does, crack it open anyway and after admiring my great
photos on the packaging, do watch the main feature.)

So, without further adieu, “Meet The Butler Bulldog.”

Well, what did you think? Pretty good huh? I’m thinking we should pitch this to A&E to see if they’ll profile me for their A&E Biography show.

Anyway,
what is the deal with all of these thunderstorms lately? Not a fan.
Between the lightning, the loud cracks of thunder, the tornado sirens
and the drenching rain, it’s not a good time to be a dog in Indiana.
It’s also not allowing me to get the 10-14 hours of sleep I need each
day.

Then all of that is followed up with 90 degree temperatures
and high humidity so now I can’t put a paw out the door without panting
and overheating. Oh well, I guess that just means less play time
outside and more time spent in the air conditions and under a sturdy
roof. I hope it means a little more time in my pool too!


My mom and I are heading to Grandma and Grandpa Richards’ house in Wabash, Ind. this weekend (my dad is off racing again…this weekend in Texas – Saturday, 10 p.m., ESPN2) so I’m hoping we can get my pool out there and I can go for a dip. Maybe we can squeeze in a four-wheeler ride too!

Weather aside and recreation, I was recently informed of Dogster’s Dog Blog and
their research suggesting that the bulldog is the most flatulent breed
of dogs. I just want to know what the research process involved to come
up with this accusation.

I cannot deny that I may have a little
flatulence problem, but that’s only because my dad is typing this for
me and he keeps me honest. If I could type this blog myself, I would
deny, deny, deny. Pretty much like all you dog owners do who have been
known to break their own wind and then blame it on the dog. We’re on to
your little game!

Well, I guess that’s about it for now. A few
of you have been leaving me comments lately, and I appreciate that. I
will try and take some time this next week to dig through the “mail
bag” and respond with some answers and comments.

Stay cool,

Blue II
