Mascots going to Dawg Days
Eastern New Mexico University’s live mascots, Vic and Tory, spent the summer on campus and are scheduled to make their fall debut during Dawg Days, said Director of Publications Janice Morrow.
The dogs have been coming to the Office of Communications with their roommate Dallas Ellsworth, who works there, and living on campus with Ellsworth and a new roommate, sophomore and Portales native Shawn Franken. Morrow said Vic and Tory’s space in the agriculture building is being prepared.
Dawg Days starts Aug. 14. and Morrow hopes to start selling Vic and Tory T-shirts then to raise money for the dogs’ care.
