Beautiful Bulldogs

Drake University is among my younger son’s top school choices for next year, if not his top choice.
I so wish we would have done our campus visit last week during this…
The 2011 Beautiful Bulldog Contest. Meet Lucy, the winner and Drake’s mascot for next year. 
Links to photo credits are listed below each photo. Winner photo link.

According to contest rules listed on the website, entries must be a “real, living, drooling English Bulldog,” but judging its beauty is based on the eye of the beholder. AKC standards do not apply.
I love that — an equal opportunity mascot.

This next photo is begging for a caption. Ballerina Bullie seems unimpressed with Football Bullie.

I’m not thrilled at the prospect of my son going all the way to Des Moines, Iowa to go to school, but this contest certainly didn’t hurt the argument for it.
