Uga, we hardly knew you … because you died at 4

UGA_VII2Take a great university (Georgia) in one of the best college towns in the country (Athens), with a College of Veterinary Medicine that’s utterly world-class.  Have someone in that world class veterinary school say that it’s probably not a good idea for a lawyer in Savannah best known as one of the players  in “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” to keep getting mascots for the school.

From the article:

He died of heart-related causes according to owner Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler.  He was four years old and finishing his second season as the team’s mascot.  His given name was “Loran’s Best” and his first game was Aug. 30, 2008, vs. Georgia Southern.

“We are all in a state of shock,” said Seiler.  “We had no warning whatsoever.”

There will be no live mascot at Georgia’s game on Saturday but a wreath will be placed on Uga VII’s doghouse on the north sideline.

“He was 10-3 last year which is not bad for a ‘freshman,’” said Seiler.  “Uga VII was not as active or mischievous as his father but more distinguished.  He realized his role when he put his shirt on.  He was well-behaved and always appreciated the significance of his role.”

“Not as active.” A bum heart and trouble breathing will do that to ya, I bet.

How about a little outcrossing of those defective lines, for a dog who can actually, you know, breathe? A less-extreme look  would still be a bulldog. In fact, it would actually be a bulldog.

R.I.P., Uga. You poor dog.…
