'Jimmy and Royce take Chicago'

Bulls rookie Jimmy Butler decided it's time to get a watch dog, and by watch dog I mean a palm-sized Husky with giant blue eyes that happens to have been stuffed by employees at Ty.

Butler took his fans on a Twitter tour of his apartment where he first revealed his new roommate and friend, Royce. The recently-acquired pet quickly made himself at home, marking his territory and drinking out of the toilet.

On this week's edition of 'Jimmy and Royce Take Chicago', the husky pup goes on a walk through the halls of his master's building, ready to meet and greet neighbors and get acquainted with his new habitat.

Follow Butler on Twitter for entertaining updates on his life with Royce.

The Cubs headed to Cincinnati in style Thursday night for their final regular-season series of the season.

In what may or may not be the last themed trip of the year implemented by Joe Maddon, Cubs players sported NFL jerseys while they hit the road and some of them are unique.
