Rest In Peace Big Dawg!

I found out some bad news today. My beloved Uga VI died last night of congestive heart failure. It is a very sad day for the Dawg Nation. We lost an amazing mascot. The Seiler family lost a beloved pet. And my own Georgia Girl lost an uncle. He will be missed by us all.

Here are a few clips of Uga VI.

My kids were lucky enough to get their picture taken with Uga VI (twice).

This is the night before the UGA/Vandy game in Nashville this past year.

Here are they are with him before the UGA/Vandy game in 2005.

Rest In Peace Uga VI. You were a Damn Good Dawg!!!

Its so weird, when I googled images of Uga this morning to write my post, several pages in I saw your profile pic & a pic of your cuties w/ Uga.
Hope you're having a great summer!
Go Dawgs!

I got the phone call from my Mom and an email from my Dad about Uga. Sad, very sad, but he lived a long life. I'm sorry that Georgia (your Georgia not our school) lost her uncle. Great pics of the kids with Uga! Something for you to always treasure. Sure would have been nice to be able to have been at the memorial service at Sanford, wouldn't it?
