It's a video of a cute puppy. You know you're going to click.

UConn introduced its new mascot, Jonathan XIV on Wednesday. He was born Oct. 5 and per the UConn site "the puppy’s outgoing personality immediately made him a standout, and the fact that his markings resemble UConn’s new husky logo helped in making him a unanimous choice for the part."

The Siberian Husky puppy replaces Jonathan XIII, who was an all-white husky. He was UConn's mascot since 2008.

Oh, who are we kidding. You read none of this. Instead, you watched the video again.
