INDIANAPOLIS - Butler Blue I, the English bulldog who served as Butler University's first live mascot, died Friday at the age of 13, the university announced.
Blue I served as the university's mascot from 2000-2004. She was handled by Kelli Walker, who later took Blue I with her to Washington and then Chicago.
"For over 13 years Blue lived an extraordinary life," Walker said. "Her noble heart stopped today; instead of feeling empty, my heart is twice as full for loving her."
Blue I was born Sept. 23, 2000, at Kong King Kennel in Lizton, Ind. – also the birthplace of her successors Blue II and Blue III, also known as "Trip."
Butler Blue II passed away in August of 2013 at 9 years old.
Both Blue I and Blue II will rest in a new Bulldog Memorial being erected Butler's campus. The memorial was a gift of the Class of 2013, along with donations to the Campaign for Hinkle Fieldhouse.
The memorial is scheduled to be dedicated this fall.
