Back to Uga VIII...I just explained to her that it takes time and that he's actually the Seilers' pet. They want the right one. Besides, Russ has shown he can hold down a bag of ice or two.
But it all got me thinking about our great mascot and some signature moments. Perhaps my favorite of all time is this...
If Robert Baker has any children today, they can thank Charles' tight grip on that leash.
And here's some video from Uga VIIs ceremonial Passing of the Bone a couple years ago. Notice the worried startle at about the 1:40 mark when the Redcoats join in. Makes you appreciate the transition these dogs go through from family puppy to full fledged mascot. It's not a job for just any dawg.
So glad we have the best damn mascot in the history of sport. Best of luck to the Seilers in the selection process. We'll pass that bone, when it's time.
