Goodbye, UGA VI

29 Jun

UGA VI, the latest in a long line of University of Georgia bulldog mascots, has passed away. As you may recall, UGA’s owner Frank Seiler was a principal character in the fantastic book, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”  Sad that he is gone, but this dog lived a great life. Kind of funny that they keep won-loss records on the bulldogs. As you can see in the AP blurb below, this UGA was a winner!

The beloved University of Georgia mascot, has died from congestive heart failure at his home in Savannah on Friday, June 27, 2008. The bulldog’s owner, Frank Seiler, said the he had the best winning record of any mascot in the school’s history.
