This is the user page for Spike the Dog, the former mascot of the (Lynn) Massachusetts Mad Dogs, and an unofficial and uninvited mascot for various defunct teams including--
- The Concord (NH) Quarry Dogs (NECBL college-summer baseball)
- The Nashua (NH) Pride (Atlantic/Can-Am semi-pro baseball)
- The Manchester (NH) Millrats (PBL semi-pro basketball)
He was once invited, and put on the marquee along with an Elvis impersonator, by the Sanford Mainers of the NECBL--but has been thrown out of his birthplace in Lynn by two separate club presidents, and grudgingly allowed in by a third.

(There is even more, including annual reports, currently hosted for me by a friend on a baseball-themed web site, which I am contemplating gradually moving here.)
Am I a furry? Yes, in the sense that I have imbued this Dog with a character, and would not loan it out and let it have experiences apart from me. No, in the sense that I don't go to conventions, look for Furry Sex, or seek to give the Dog a life that is any larger than that which is of service to my local team.
I'll check in from time to time and answer correspondence on the talk page.
