Sad news from the University of Georgia.
Our beloved mascot, Uga VII, passed away in a shocking turn of events this week. We only had him as our Dawg for a couple of years. The entire Bulldog Nation is in mourning. His memorial service may be found at www.georgiadogs.com . We were all shocked when we heard. His funeral service was held at Sanford Stadium and he was laid to rest in the Uga crypts in the entrance area inside the stadium.
I'm quite sad at this turn of events. First, because he was a symbol of my most beloved Alma Mater. Second, he was a dog. Not just a dog, but a Dawg. My heart breaks to think of how short his life was. However, I draw some comfort to know he was much loved throughout the Bulldog Nation. And he lived in the lap of luxury as not only the symbol of our University, but as the beloved family pet of the Seilers.
He will be missed terribly, but we are thankful for the memories of his service.
Godspeed, Uga. Thank you for letting us share your life.
