taste like chicken
I guess its name is Dubs.
Damn good dog. :sad1:
I know someone that really named their dog, dog once.
My sister-in-law. D.O.G. pronounced Dee Oh Gee.
What did they name it the 2nd time? ba-doom-tshhhh
Here is a history of the mascot and all the dogs and their names (and pics) going back to 1922:
Heat waves and cars appear to be bad news for your mascots...thanks for the info.
Why use different names? How confusing.
I don't know what they call the dog,
We call her tini's mom!:lol:
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?
Ralphie, Bevo, UGA, the A&m dog, etc.
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.
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.
Wainaminnit. When I drink too much, I've been known to get a little ralphie.
After too much Ralphie II and Ralphie III, I tend to get a little Ralphie IV before I Ralphie I and Ralphie V.
Separate names with a comma.
