It's a dog's life: Georgetown University's mascot goes to Hollywood

As it's the start of a new year, we feel it's the perfect time to appreciate the more light-hearted things in life.  We love a university that takes the time to put a smile on the faces of stressed-out students which is why we felt it our duty to paws (ahem) and appreciate Georgetown University's homage to some of TVs most iconic shows.

Jack the bulldog is the official mascot of the Georgetown University Hoyas athletic teams. Jack has been the given name of at least five bulldogs since 1962 and he has become a beloved Georgetown institution.

Now that we have the background out of the way, we can get onto showing you the university's Instagram series starring Jack the bulldog in a variety of famous TV shows.

Barks and Rec

Our personal favorite in the series is a video starring Jack the bulldog as the entire cast of Barks and Rec. All the characters get a mention, including; Tom Haverfurr, Les-flea Knope and Ron Dawgson.
