Beloved Drake Mascot Passes Away
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Officials say the Drake University bulldog mascot has died.
The university says the owners of Porthouse, Kevin and Erin Bell, announced his death through his blog (http://bit.ly/1cPyjma ) on Sunday. They'd shared Porterhouse with the school since he was crowned Beautiful Bulldog during the Drake Relays-week competition in 2009.
Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield Clubb says "no bulldog has had such a meaningful and lasting impact on the Drake community."
