Junior Timbermen choose mascot

The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team is tugging at the leash to get a new season underway.

The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League club announced last week that it will have a new mascot this year, a puppy named Tim.

The Labrador retriever/golden retriever cross, born in November, is being raised in co-operation with B.C. Guide Dog Services.

The T-men created a Goals for Dogs pledge program this winter, and are asking local companies or community members to pledge a certain amount of money for each goal the team scores in the upcoming BCJALL season. The T-men scored 191 goals in 2010.

“The B.C. Guide Dog Services have clear and specific goals for each of their dogs in training, but the Timbermen have come up with a whole new spin on the story,” said Barbara Haley, B.C. Guide Dogs Services spokeswoman, in a press release.
