In a rather roundabout way, I found out today that the mascot of Boston University is a Boston Terrier named Rhett. My first reaction was to laugh, because if there’s a dog breed that doesn’t exactly instill fear into someone, it’s a Boston Terrier. As you might be able to tell from different posts on this site, they’re somewhat crazy little dogs with a big personality (I think both Zoey and Elsa actually believe that they’re humans). To see them used as a college mascot and drawn in a playful, yet slightly menacing way cracked me up.
Needless to say, it’s now my goal to buy some sort of Boston University sportswear (must have mascot on it). So yeah, it’s a totally dumb reason to like a University, but I’m going to have to say that I’m definitely rooting for BU whenever I have the chance. Our dogs wouldn’t have it any other way.
