The Washington Huskies are among the colleges that use a live mascot at their games, and the current dog will be retiring after Saturday.
Washington’s dog, Dubs, is 10 years old and will lead the Huskies onto the field before the game for the final time Saturday. There will then be a “Passing of the Collar” ceremony in the first quarter. The next mascot, Dubs 2, will lead the team onto the field after halftime.
Thank you, Dubs
Dubs will lead the Huskies out of the tunnel for the last time Saturday, followed by a Passing of the Collar ceremony during the first quarter. #PurpleReign

Dubs is actually an Alaskan Malamute who made his first appearance at Husky Stadium in 2009. His replacement, Dubs 2, is a 10-month-old puppy whom we featured on the site back in April.
The 7-3 Huskies will be hosting 2-8 Oregon State in their final home game of the season.
