Uga VII’s reign the shortest of the line

Uga VII. (Georgiadogs.com)

The death of Uga VII, who was officially introduced as to UGA fans at the Georgia Southern game in Athens on Aug. 30, 2008, makes his tenure the shortest of the Uga line of pure-bred white English bulldogs owned by Sonny Seiler of Savannah.

Previously, Uga II, who was mascot from 1966 to 1972, held that distinction. The Seilers have provided UGA’s mascots since 1956 and generally have served about nine years each.

At 56 and a half pounds, Uga VII, whose official name was “Uga VI’s Loran’s Best,” was second only to Uga VI as the biggest mascot in the line. He was 4 years old.

The Ugas are among the nation’s most popular and celebrated college mascots, especially with the TV networks that cover football. Uga V was perhaps the biggest “celebrity” of the line, having had a role playing his father in the film “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” and been named America’s best college mascot by Sports Illustrated.

Uga VII’s time with the Bulldogs was too brief to make much of an impression other than the initial one of him asleep in his air-conditioned doghouse at Sanford Stadium during a game. In a statement released by UGA, Seiler said, “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.”

I’m assuming that, as with the other Ugas, he will be buried inside Sanford Stadium — an honor apparently not given to any other college sports mascot. 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, UGA announced.

One question still to be answered is whether the Seilers have another pure white dog in the line to take Uga VII’s place. When Uga IV died, there was no suitable heir in place (all his sons were considered too old), but it turned out that a mate was expecting and the pup that became Uga V was the ony all-white male in the litter. Similarly, when an aging Uga III became ill, he had no pure white heir but a last mating produced a single all-white male. Update: According to UGA, Seiler said there were options available for Uga VII’s replacement but no final determination would be made until sometime next year.

It should be remembered that in addition to serving as UGA mascots, the Ugas are family pets of the Seilers, and our condolences go out to them on the loss of the latest damn good dog to wear the famed red sweater.

We haven’t had good luck with the mascots lately. Is there even another male in line to finish the season?

This is very sad…he was still just a baby. And with UGA getting the best vet care money can by with the university comp’ing everything, i don’t see how this happened other than it being just a freak thing that the vet’s didn’t notice.

Someone should shave Gator Fan’s mullet and chest hair, take away his gold chains, jorts and wife-beater T, and empty the Natural Light from his 30-year old fridge. Heck, reposses his trailer in the Ocala National Forest as well. If you really want to rock his world, take away his carton of Marlboro Reds. Then maybe he’ll know what it is to lose something close to him.

RIP, UGA VII. In doggie heaven you will meet many UGAs, most of whom knew plenty of wins over Florida during their reign on earth. There’s a reason why we still have a significant lead in the overall series. I’d start with UGA III.

Im a UGA grad and a huge Dawg fan. That said, dont you think it’s a little over the top to have a memorial guest book set up for UGA VII? If you address UGA’s condolences to his family; who reads it to them? Poor Mama Dawg just said “Damn!!I gotta drop another all white puppy..it’s gonna be a long Christmas”.

Im guessing that there are gonna be funny Tech fans signing that book.

UGA VII, God rest his soul, always seemed lethargic IMO and looked more like a Char Pei (sp?) than a Bulldog. Im looking for a little more spunk in the next one.

There were five people on an airplane that was going down and there were only 4 parachutes. The pilot said I’ve got to have one so I can survive and tell the FAA what caused this crash, the doctor said I’ve got to take one because I am so valuable to saving lives, JAXGATOR took one and said I’ve got to take one because I am the smartest person in the world. That left a preacher and a little boy. The preacher told the little boy to take the last one because being a preacher he knew he was right with lord and he would go to heaven. The little boy (named Herschel) said that’s okay preacher there are two left. JAXGATOR jumped with my back pack.

I always wondered if he was healthy though. He didnt patrol the sidelines like his daddy. UGA 6 got after people and barked the whole game. UGA 7 was very lacsidasicle and was just there. We saw him at the G day game and he just looked exhausted just from riding. He was a beautiful specimen of an animal and he will be missed. Bring on a new era .

All good jackets should have enough class to know when to stop a rivalry– In the case of the death of a beloved member of the family “clean ole fashioned hate” should not exist. My heart goes out to the Dawg Nation I hope that ya’ll are able to find an heir that is as beautiful as Uga VII. RIP to a damn good dog– even if he couldn’t chose his team.

Uga VII looked sad and lethargic from the first appearance he made. He appeared to struggle just walking on game day. He was bred to look cute with no regard for the negative effects if had on him. Shameful really. I know a lot of people will get mad and disagree with what I said, but I don’t care. It’s the truth.

Sincere condolences to the Seiler family from a GT grad (EE 81) living in Chicago. My son is a HUGE Dawg fan (takes after his mother) and we gave him a framed picture of UGA VII last Christmas to add to his collection of past UGAs. I also have a nephew on the football team who attended the ceremony for UGA VI last year with the other players–don’t belittle UGA to those guys. As a dog owner for 20 years, I know losing a pet is like losing a member of the family, especially one as young as Loren’s Best who dies unexpectedly. Everyone posting anything other than condolences, best wishes, and RIPs not only lack class, but have never experienced the true joy of owning and loving a dog who returns your love unconditionally. I suggest you read some of Lewis Grizzard’s old writings about his dag Catfish–he was as good as anyone about explaining what ya’ll obviously don’t get. RIP Loren’s Best.

Watch how fast that Johnson leaves Tech the minute someone comes with more money.

Take one of my dogs who have been through the school of hard knocks and you will have a mascot that inspires aggressiveness instead of passiveness of the line of bulldogs.

I am sad for Uga and Ga. However the Seiler family does a bad job of raising the dogs. Bulldogs are supposed to live about 10 years. When is the last time we had a Uga that even came close? The school ought to take responsibility for the care of Uga. The family over feeds him and he they don’t take him out for walks. Isn’t that a formula for a short life span? Don’t believe me, go look at pictures of all the Uga’s.
