Georgetown bulldog mascot update

I might be the last person who still cares about this story, due to my desire to look at photos of bulldogs, but here are some updates on Georgetown’s bulldog mascot Jack, who suffered a famous leg injury this spring.

1) According to his keeper, the Rev. Christopher Steck, Jack visited the vet surgeon this week, and was told that the injury/tear remained, and the left thigh muscle was diminishing due to him favoring his right leg. So surgery was the answer, and the “surgery went great; no surprises. Normal vitals; groggy. No bone damage/arthritis.”

So that’s all good news.

2) Meanwhile, mascot in training J.J. arrived from California, became buddies with Jack, had a large welcoming party on campus and is already learning how to rip up cardboard boxes, which is Jack’s signature move.

3) Also, awww.
