Friday, February 16, 2018 – The First Lady of Aggieland

Here is a photo of me and Miss Reveille IX last night at the Beat the Hell out of breast cancer women’s basketball game.

Miss Rev is looking at the cadet holding the treats and probably thinking “If I have to sit here with all these people in pink shirts and get my picture made, there better be treats.”

Thank you to Krystal, Mickey and KB for the ability to get down in that position and more importantly the ability to get back up. I know! You want me to do it while holding thirty plus pounds of weights. Maybe next time I will lift Reveille over my head.

Happy Friday Ya’ll.

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 – The Mascots – They Are Part of the Family Too.

As the college football fanatics count down the days until kick off, we learn today of a sadness and a happiness regarding school mascots.

On the sadness side for all my LSU relatives and friends, Mike the Tiger was diagnosed with cancer.http://www.tmz.com/2016/05/23/lsu-tiger-mascot-diagnosed-with-cancer/?adid=hero2

Mike is indeed one of the most beautiful (and scary) mascots in all of college football. He will be provided with the best care possible to live his days in comfort. Would somebody living in Louisiana please go take a picture of Mike for me? I will repay you by renting my front bed room to you on Thanksgiving weekend for no charge.

On the happiness side for all of my friends who had to go THE University of Texas in Austin, their new mascot Bevo XV will be on the sidelines at the Longhorn vs Notre Dame game on September 4. Yeah – a Longhorn Steer and a Creepy Leprechaun.

Bevo XIV passed away from cancer last year. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2016/05/23/bevo-mascot-chosen-returns-to-texas-sideline-in-2016/84816762/

It really was strange to not have Bevo on the sidelines during the last football games. However, I do not think the missing mascot was the reason the Longhorns lost all of the games.

Was it really necessary to note that the premier of Bevo XV marks the 100th anniversary of its appearance with a victory over Texas A&M? If Bevo XV is “very gentle, smart and curious” as they say, then Bevo knows, The Aggies no longer care about the rivalry. We’ve got LSU.

Miss Rev will pass on her title of first lady of Aggie to Reveille IX at Final Review on May 9 and retire to the Stevenson Companion Animal Life-Care Center. She is the first Reveille to do so. Her predecessors retired to the homes of A&M alumni or veterinarians.

Thursday, March 12, 2015 – Reveille Training

Thursday, March 12, 2015 – Reveille Training

Yes, Reveille IX is a beauty.  I saw in another article that Reveille VIII would be training her.  VKM, I hope you got the contract to create the training modules for the new Rev.  Just exactly how does one dog train another? Are these the key concepts?

No one walks on the grass around the Memorial Student Center because it is in memory of our fallen heroes.

Never pee on Kyle Field. It too is sacred.

When at a visitor’s site, always pee on their field.

Insist on a new wardrobe, including a new coat, a new bed and new raincoat.

Always sleep on your handler’s bunk.  He must sleep on the floor.

Learn when your handler has an exam, and then bark in class so the class will be dismissed.

Only bark at opponents’ mascots you can outrun.  Never bark at those for which you could be an afternoon snack– (Tigers and Alligators.)

During football games, run as fast as you can when leading in the team.  There is an army of big and fast men running behind you.

Never fear – your handler will throw his body on you to protect you from harm and SMU football players.

Never fear – should a team make fun of you (the Rice University MOB), the entire Corp of Cadets will hold the opponent hostage until the Texas Rangers arrive.

Never roll in the mud or in dead carcasses unless the Aggies win the National Football Championship. Then all Aggies will join you in the celebration.
