Uga VI, R.I.P.

As expected, Paul Westerdawg has complete updates on the passing of Uga VI.

Damon Evans, a Georgia man through and through, said: "Uga VI was a damn good mascot and a damn good dog. He was an outstanding representative of our fine institution. While this is a sad day for all Bulldog fans, our condolences especially go out to the Seiler family." Michael Adams, in what surely will be remembered as the most dignified and respectable moment of his presidency, remarked:

UGA VI served with extraordinary courage and heart as a beloved University of Georgia mascot. He was a true symbol of the toughness and competitiveness of our athletic teams, and was a rallying figure for the entire Bulldog Nation. We extend sympathy to the Seilers for the loss of a dear family pet and a great campus mascot who will be missed and remembered by UGA alumni and friends everywhere.

The burial ceremony in Sanford Stadium will be private and, although no formal "passing of the bone" to the heir who will take up the mantle as Uga VII has yet been arranged, the Seiler family has "stated that the lineage is secure," so there is no need for unease during this interregnum.

The above-quoted information came from the newly-established Facebook group R.I.P. Uga VI. The beloved mascot’s final Facebook status update says it all:

Uga VI is proud to have served the greatest university in the world. He wants Georgia Nation to know that he's in a better place and the steaks up here are heavenly.

Rest easy, Uga VI. You were a damn good dog.

Go ‘Dawgs.
