Damn Good Dogs! The Real Story of Uga, the University of Georgia's Bulldog Mascots
The University of Georgia Bulldogs’ mascot, Uga VI, is the current title-bearer of over six decades of English bulldogs who have faithfully served a loyal legion of University of Georgia football fans, carrying a grand tradition since Uga I was born in 1955. Whenever and wherever the Georgia Bulldogs play football, Uga is there along with his air-conditioned doghouse. This book gives a rare glimpse into the personal and breed history of these dogs. Full of anecdotes, such as Uga V's attempt to bite an Auburn player's leg when he made the mistake of venturing into Uga's sideline during the 1996 Auburn vs. Georgia game, this book also includes illustrations and memorabilia from the mascots’ owner’s personal collection.
