Every project that you complete, especially one of this magnitude, requires having a mascot who will faithfully join you in sadness or glee. Whether bird, hamster, small child, or dog, a Project Mascot is an incredibly important asset in maintaining sanity. Ours was a giant golden retriever named Doctor, who watched our progress through the days lying quietly on the floor of the shop.
Feel free to gleefully show your mascot every exciting new detail in your creation – after all, that’s what they’re there for!
Edit: As of early 2014, Doctor the Mascot unfortunately passed away due to heart complications and old age. He is sorely missed.
