Lucky Jr.

We ran into Lucky Jr., the Bulls’ canine mascot, outside the ballpark Friday evening. Lucky isn’t allowed to relieve himself on the DBAP turf, so he has to leave the ballpark when nature calls. What a gentleman.

Lucky Jr.’s predecessor, Lucky the Wonder Dog, retired in May. He was a ballpark regular at weekend games since 2003. Lucky Jr. is still learning the ropes, but with that endearing face and winning smile, he will have his own fan club soon enough. He's well on his way to Wonder Dog status!

Lucky Jr. joins us from the Canine College of Chapel Hill. Check out his baby pictures. (CC-CH is not a member institution of the UNC system...but it should be!)
