Butler Bulldog Video Shows Mascot Training For School's Big East Entry

Bulldogs doing just about anything are pretty cute, but how about one training for its school's move to the Big East Conference in a jowl-jiggling workout montage?

In the video above, Trip, the Butler University Bulldogs mascot, is put through his paces in an array of Butler jock venues.

Cue the inspirational music and the adorableness.

Trip has youth on his side, according to Butler's website. He was born Dec. 23, 2011, and made his debut during a Butler basketball game in February 2012.

The Bulldog is the most common mascot name in major college sports, with 14 schools using it, according to Bleacher Report. But we think Trip's bit (directed by sophomore Tim Valentine) just made the Butler Bulldog stand out a little bit more.
