ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia's mascot, Uga VI, has died of congestive heart failure.
The university said Saturday that the 9-year-old English bulldog died after being taken to a veterinarian. Its owner found the mascot breathing heavily at home the night before.
The dog became the mascot in 1999 for the school's teams, known as the ``Bulldogs.''
He was a regular on the sidelines of home football games in a shirt stitched with the letter 'G.'
Damon Evans, the university's athletic director, called it a ``sad day for the entire Bulldog nation.''
