Memphis is our New Town Mascot!!!!! *PIC ADDED*
« on: July 26, 2008, 09:27:31 pm »
Yahoo! there was a contest held today for our newest mascot of cobalt. Long ago there was a bulldog, who was the towns mascot, his name, was Cobalt... (that is how our town got its name). Well it was held and we entered memphis, and he won. along with winning, we got 100$ and he is alowed ANYWHERE in cobalt, buildings etc. we are welcome to go to the classic theater (for plays etc) for free. And he will be at every 'opening' for the next year. will post pics once i get some...

thanks everyone. i am still waiting on pics... i didnt take them myself, but i do believe he will be in the paper so that comes out weds. and they should have him on the website, i asked them to send me the pics, i will post whatever i get!!!
Memphis is still getting spoiled. my mom made him a blue bandana with MR.Cobalt written on it  :D we bought him some busy bones and hes been getting hugs from EVERYONE who sees him. we took him down town and one of the hot dog vendors even gave him hotdogs and buns (that he over cooked, but still) so he is in all his glory!!! :)

Congrats on having such a famous boy!  There is no way that Memphis is fat and ugly.  He's a gorgeous big boy.

Wow!! That is the coolest news! I would definitely be taking advantage of the ruling that he could go into any buildings. I'd have him out everyday, strutting through town with his bad self!!

Can't wait to see more pics!

Congrats, Memphis - don't let fame spoil your sweet self.

here is taken from the news paper

Major Holland Park was setting for the crowning of "Cobalt the Dog" competition Saturday afternoon. The legend of Cobalt the Dog dates back to the early mining days in Cobalt and the story of Cobalt's first mascot being a stray bulldog. This year Cobalt has chosen a Mr. and Mrs. Cobalt the Dog mascots.

"Looks aren't everything," judge Colleen Belanger said.

What she said she was looking for in a dog's behavior was their ability to attend a public function, friendliness, calm and cool and a dog who wasn't too excited in crowds.

It was tough choosing one winner so this year Cobalt has two mascots in Mr. Memphis the Great Dane who is owned by Jodi Matton and Mrs. Lily the bulldog owned by Deanna Mathers both from Cobalt. Both owners were awarded $100 and will share the role of being Cobalt's mascot at various functions throughout the year and will open up Silverfest next year,
