“ Blue ” is a pure-bred Blue Great Dane . He ’ s one of the strongest , most beautiful dogs in the world . His coat is a sleek blue , unique among canines . With eyes to match .
And because he ’ s a Great Dane , he ’ s ...… well ... BIG .
How big ?
Right now , he ’ s still a pup and won ’ t get full-sized for about a year .
But when he is , Blue will be 32 ” at the shoulder . And on hind legs , watch out . He ’ ll stretch to over six feet with paws on your shoulders . And weigh about 150 pounds . Just the right size for big-time athletics at Bluefield State .
And the perfect pick for our new motto : Guard The Hill .
Great Danes are wonderful family dogs . Gentle around kids . They even “ crawl ” onto laps and pretend they ’ re poodles .
But they ’ re also great defenders of home and hearth . Their bark is enough to warn off anyone who might intend harm or poach on Bluefield State territory .
Sir Blue makes his debut at our first football game in 41 years .
Come see him , Saturday , September 4 , when our Big Blue host the Blue Devils of Lawrence Tech .
