    I would vote for a return to simply "Blue." The official name will always be "Butler Blue II, III, IV, etc." but I don't think each one needs to have its own cutesy nickname. If something makes sense, sure go ahead, but don't force it.

    藍色常春藤. According to Google translate this is Blue IV in Chinese. I don't know if this is even close to a correct translation, it seems a bit wordy. I suggest that if Butler goes with a female dog after Trip, it takes her to the official Butler tattoo parlor (Does Butler have one of these?) and gets it placed on her lower back. Butler could place this logo on the upper back, just below the collar, of T-shirts it sells at the spirit store. A portion of the proceeds can go to her favorite charity.

    lierre bleu. This is the Google translate French version for Blue IV. I think Blue IV may be violating University policy if he/she smokes on campus. Many institutions of higher education are becoming tobacco free campuses. If Butler goes with a French bulldog, Kaltenmark may have to take IV off campus for smoking breaks.

    I'm guessing that they went with Trip as a call name because Blue II was still around, and they used Blue for his call name. Blue I and Blue II didn't live in the same household, so that wouldn't have been an issue with them.

    Trip is short for "triple" (this directly from Michael Kaltenmark); I would have thought Trey would have been more apropos.

    As to the name for the next, how 'bout Moose, in memory of Andrew?

    I believe Moose is already the name of one of Trips relatives that was given to Samantha Smith.

    Blue IV should be a girl named Gloria who always has a pink bow in her hair and a tutu around her slim, shapely waist. She could raise money for female causes like breast cancer in her spare time. It's time for Butler to take the lead by bringing equal opportunity employment to the mascot world. At the very least, Butler needs to take affirmative action seriously and interview some *****es for the job.

    The original Butler Blue was female. You are a troll and have nothing to add here.

    " they feared the dog would be a distraction and_worse_a potential punchline for a serious academic institution."

    Good God, that can't possibly be true.

    I want to know the Ashburn student's crazy method to burn fat.

    Purely from an intellectual curiosity point of view, of course.
