They became friends last season when Butler traveled to Georgetown in the debut season of the new Big East. Jack the Bulldog, Georgetown's mascot, hosted Butler Blue III, Butler's mascot, and they immediately hit it off.

Well, Butler returns to D.C. to face the Hoyas this weekend, so ol' Blue got into town a little early to hang out with his buddy from Georgetown on Thursday morning. And the result, to no one's surprise, was precious.
UPDATE: And now we have video of Thursday's reunion!
