Many of us have lost special pets before.
Now, we have all lost one together.
RIP, Blue II, Butler’s iconic bulldog, who lost a battle with a heart condition this week.
The English bulldog was more than a mascot, he was a symbol of the men’s basketball program’s rise to national prominence. The low-to-the-ground canine carrying a giant bone across the court seemed an apt analogy for the well-grounded teams.
