Not only no, hell no! In my next life, I'd like to come back as Uga, living the good, allbeit abbreviated, life.

I was at that game! IIRC, it was the first SEC game to game to go to OT.

RIP Uga VII. Here's to a worthy Uga VIII, PETA be damned!

Will they turn off the automated dog before the game is over when they lose like they did the scoreboard Saturday night when they lost to Kentucky?

Reading the email, it seems that adopting a bulldog from a shelter or rescue society would be an acceptable move.


Oh, and on PETA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAt1z_TgPQ4

Randy,

The chances of finding an English Bulldog at a shelter are pretty slim. Also it is our tradition to have an all white bulldog, which is a little less common.

If the University of Georgia stops using pure breed bulldogs as our mascot, it certainly isn't going to stop people from breeding them as well as many other breeds of dogs, which seems to be PETA's goal. The UGA line is about to be on their 8 dawg in 53 years, which averages out to a normal life span for a bulldog...these are some of the most pampered and beloved, family pets as well as mascots in the world. I think PETA is barking up the wrong tree here.

I went to Georgia Tech and I think that's ridiculous.

They supposed to have a mechanical War Eagle at Auburn?
