DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Officials say the Drake University bulldog mascot has died.

The university says the owners of Porthouse, Kevin and Erin Bell, announced his death through his blog on Sunday. They'd shared Porterhouse with the school since he was crowned Beautiful Bulldog during the Drake Relays-week competition in 2009.

Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield Clubb says "no bulldog has had such a meaningful and lasting impact on the Drake community."
