One of the breeds you might expect to find most often used in sports
Actually is only seen in a handful of schools.
Eastern New Mexico University adapted two mascots at once
In the year 2009, and both of the dogs were known for their speed.
See Vic and Tory are greyhounds, a great mascot indeed.
Once racers themselves, they now get to live out their days in great ease
Getting lovin’ from fans and attention from crowds,
This pair of pups are some of the fastest mascots around.
Both of these guys have personalities of their own
Though neither has anything like a mean bone.
Vic never cared to race on the track.
His idea of good times is to rest and to snack.
Being lazy and playing about in the sun is his fun.
So as a racer he didn’t do well, that is what they said,
And now he’s retired Vic does spend a good bit of time in bed.
Tory loves running, but being muzzled was too much a distraction
When given the choice, he likes to run free, then he really gets traction.
He loves attention and to hang out with the team and their fans.
Give him a minute and he’ll hypnotize you with his eyes.
That co-eds love him comes as absolutely no surprise.
Together they love to romp and play.
They get to go out to the soccer field to just run about.
They will bark as you play and shout.
Their green uniforms look fitting and slim on their frames.
Former racers, now their days are full of different games.
