The name Uga is synonymous with the Georgia Bulldogs, a perennial powerhouse among the top college football teams in the country. These English bulldogs are so revered that when they die, they are buried in a mausoleum at Sanford Stadium. But Uga is also a family pet, and "Damn Good Dogs!" gives readers a rare glimpse into the personal history of these nationally acclaimed mascots. Filled with colorful anecdotes--such as Uga V's famous lunge at an Auburn player, his appearance in several Hollywood films, and "Sports Illustrated"'s decision to put him on the cover of its 1997 college sports issue--"Damn Good Dogs!" provides the backstory to more than fifty years of collegiate sports history. Wherever Georgia plays football, its famous mascot is there. At home games he stays cool in an air-conditioned doghouse or sits perched atop a bag of ice. When Herschel Walker won the Heisman Trophy in 1982, Uga IV became the only four-legged attendee at the Heisman banquet. And that--believe it or not--is just a small part of the history of the Georgia mascots. Lavishly illustrated with more than five hundred photos and images of memorabilia from the Seilers' private collection, this edition features more than eighty new pages of material on Uga VI, Uga VII, Uga VIII, and Russ, the super sub--including an Uga VIII photo album that is sure to be a fan favorite.Publication of this book was made possible, in part, by the President's Venture Fund through generous gifts of the University of Georgia Partners.A portion of the proceeds from sales of this book benefits the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.
