    If we knew we were going to retire him, why didn't we have a plan to do it during the summer so a replacement could seamless slide in for all the sports appearances?

    That would require forethought from within.

    I like me.

    It's a mockery.

    Do we have to go through the year long application process with the government for a new dog?

    Just more of the same massive and liberal democrat government regulations. And they call themselves "progressive".

    So, we've known this was the plan for THREE YEARS. And yet, for some reason, we've WAITED until basketball season, essentially (which is a very high contact with the crowds). We won't even begin the process until the end of the FALL quarter. So we're looking at at least several months, probably a YEAR without a mascot.

    All this on a schedule that we've known about.

    Or is there something simple I'm missing?

    Hell, even vets can't always take care of dogs. Maybe if we got an Aggie vet instead of an LSU vet he would know more about dogs than tigers.

    It sure seems like this retirement was planned in advance, with some kind of best-practices information about mascots. Given that we knew it was coming, surely we have a plan for a replacement ready to go, right? Everything filed, puppy due any minute, all that?

    Thanks XXI, you're as fine a DAWG as there is, and you've represented us well. Happy retirement!

    Re: Tech XXI retires from active service as live mascot

    He retired with two home football games left including Homecoming? I'm sure they have more pressing things to deal with at Tech but this is just an example of the tone deafness the powers to be at Tech exhibit at times with regards to maybe what some consider "little things" to fans and supporters. I wonder if Champ is on the same program???

    I hear ya, Dawg-brother, but after Dos Equis passed (and the circumstances around his death) I suspect this was more of honoring a potentially legal mandate. Just speculating, of course.

    Re: Tech XXI retires from active service as live mascot

    Who knows, he may have a health issue that needs tending to that the public isn't aware of. I hope that's not the case and that this has just been mismanaged by those in charge. Either way, I appreciate XXI for his service and loyalty. Seriously, he's such a good dog. Friendly as hell and a little goofy. Perfect Bulldog.

    Can't wait to meet Double Deuce™!!

    I can't believe any government agency is involved in the business and approval of mascots. What has this country come to?
