    I should know this, as I used to live up there, but it has slipped my mind. The Aggies call their collie Revielle, which is pretty creative by Aggie standards, what do the Huskies say about their pooch?

    Because the mascot and the live mascot are two different things. The dogs are individuals with different personalities, it makes no sense to name them all the same. Doesn't Georgia have a different name for their bulldogs or am I wrong about that?

    You are 100000% wrong. We are on Ralphie V, and UGA is on like XVIII

    Mascot name is a tradition, and creates a legacy. Each of our buffaloes has a different name that corresponds to their personality though.
    For Example

    Ralphie I = Ralphie (named after the sound she made while running)
    Ralphie II = Moonshine (named by ranch hands, my guess is their were drinking a lot of it)
    Ralphie III= Tequila (see above)
    Ralphie IV = Rowdy (mischievous, found in the jaws of a coyote, played rough with toys and fence posts [hence the crooked horn])
    Ralphie V = Blackout (Named because of how dark she was as a baby)

    All names except for the first have to do with alcohol/drinking/drunkenness

    Point being, as snow and others have pointed out, these long time traditional mascots have one common name that can be referenced, recognized, and marketed. The pooch at UW until now has not had that same recognition, now if they stick with Dubs that could change.

    Right. The Shamu principle. Thanks for the insight; I never knew how Blackout got her name.

    After too much Ralphie II and Ralphie III, I tend to get a little Ralphie IV before I Ralphie I and Ralphie V.
