    Hahaha...Trippy sure is an abused dawg. I think PETA is barking up the wrong tree on this one (at least with Uga and Blue)

    PETA is more interested in headlines and fundraising than animal welfare.

    Hopefully both UGA, and Texas ignore PETA whining, but they need to be more mindful of bringing a prey animal and a predator in close proximity.

    PETA can pry Blue away from my cold, dead hands.

    How the hell can they even make these claims? Is it evil to use service dogs? They say that basically that animals shouldn’t be subjected to the chaos that accompanies being a mascot, but I can’t imagine a dog in an airport is any less chaotic. Maybe less noise, but I refuse to believe these are real people.

    Does anyone really believe that Blue isn't living his best life?

    When I was at Butler, me and my friends would always joke about how much our tuition went towards Blue. (Not in a complaining fashion, just that he's a well-taken care of dog.)

    I'm not sure Trip costs the University much of anything. He's got a sponsor for food, grooming, veterinary service, and Don Hinds Ford provides him with wheels. I wish I could get sponsors for my dogs. Canine sports can get expensive.

    Even I don't take PETA seriously, and I am fairly confident that I am the most liberal poster here.

    They are great at putting out statements reacting to news stories to see what will generate some follow up in the media and free publicity for their organization. The only group I can think of that more effectively co-opts the news cycle is the Westboro Baptist Church.

    I once heard that Blue was insured for over a million dollars. Forgot where I heard that but that's one expensive dog if true.

    I heard Trip was once coerced into licking beer from a mug a Hopcat's.
