A Clean Dog is a Happy Dog – Guest Post by Butler Blue II

Happy Friday!

There have definitely been some exciting things going on. After an amazing bulldog party last month, and some great Butler Blue II visits, Good Dog Hotel has decided, along with Blue’s Mom and Butler University, to become THE official grooming sponsor for Mr. Blue II. That’s right! Butler University’s beloved Mascot will be frequenting our salon often. Blue II is a 6 year-old male bulldog, and he’s kind of a big deal. Acting as BU’s mascot and good luck charm, he gets to go to all the games and even got to go to the Final Four!!

That being said, today’s dog blog is a guest post by Butler Blue II himself!

It’s true, a clean dog certainly is a happy dog and thanks to my pals at Good Dog Hotel & Spa in Broad Ripple, I will be both clean and happy for a long time to come!

Of course, I’ve been those things for a long time, but now I’ve got the sponsorship support to make my cleanliness that much easier to come by as I’m pleased to announce that Good Dog Hotel & Spa is now the exclusive and official groomer for Butler Blue II (that’s me!).

During all of that March Madness stuff I got a call from Jen Funk, a fellow Butler grad who worked at Good Dog Hotel & Spa and wanted to recognize Butler’s advancement to the Final Four. To commemorate the occasion, she was planning a “Bulldog Party” and was offering a discount to all bulldogs (four legs) in the neighborhood that wanted to get cleaned up for the big game.

Of course, she invited me to attend as an appearance fee, she granted a full-service grooming. You may remember the occasion being televised by many of the local TV stations and featured in print thanks to The Indianapolis Star. (http://photos.indystar.com/galleries/9232-blue-ii-spa-and-party)

I still have people telling me they loved watching my spa treatment and frankly, I loved it so much that I wanted to come back for more. So the kind folks at Good Dog Hotel & Spa were happy to oblige and now I get to come back whenever I want! To know me, is to know clean and happy from now on!

In case you missed out on the excitement of the aforementioned Bulldog Party, Good Dog Hotel has PHOTOS and VIDEO on their website (www.gooddoghotel.com) for viewing. Be sure to check it all out!

I’m looking forward to partnering with Good Dog Hotel & Spa on many projects and special events in the future. They are good bunch over there and I’m happy to add them to my sponsor lineup, which includes…

We’re not only excited to be the exclusive groomer of Blue, we’re excited to be an official sponsor of Butler University as well. We’re proud of our Butler Bulldogs!

(Note from Blue’s Blog) Butler Blue II is the official mascot of Butler University. Born 3/27/2004, this 60 lb. English Bulldog is enjoying his 6th year as mascot of the Indy-based, 4,000 student, liberal arts institution. His blog is a look into his world as well as an account of his adventures as retold by his parents, Michael and Tiffany Kaltenmark. While his blog wasn’t created until Jan. 2008, Blue has actually been on the job since May 2004, thus Blue will be looking back as well as looking ahead. Enjoy the read!
