A Sad Day for the Bulldog Nation

Last Friday, the UGA family lost one of it's most beloved members - UGA VI. UGA VI was the pride of the University's athletics and an icon for the Athens area. UGA VI has been mascot for Bulldogs for the last 9 seasons.

Savannah attorney, Frank W. "Sonny"Seiller said of the most famous mascot, "He was a good one. What can I say. He had a marvelous record. He was a very strong and healthy dog. He was the biggest of all the dogs, and he had the biggest heart."

The successor to UGA VI is being kept a secret but the perks are very well known. Along with being one of the most beloved dogs in the state of Georgia, UGA VII will also have an air-conditioned dog house and travel provided by Delta to all away games among other gifts.

UGA VI will buried at Sanford Stadium today at 3:30pm in private ceremony.
