R.I.P. Uga VII

It's a sad day for bulldogs. It's a sad day for all of us dogs. Few of us reach the level of fame and fan admiration that Uga VII did, especially in such a short amount of time.

The mascot for the University of Geogia Bulldogs passed away at the age of 4 yesterday. This was only his second season as mascot, but he was beloved by so many fans - and people like my Mom who aren't crazy about college football but liked him for who he was, not his job.

R.I.P. Uga VII.

Dear me, four is so young. Sometimes the concept of mascots troubles me. So much is expected of them, the crowds, noise, heat, etc...it must be stressful. Still, Uga brought alot of happiness to so many people.we will say a prayer and keep Uga in our thoughts.
