The winningest bulldog in Georgia football history has died.
Uga X, the University of Georgia’s English bulldog mascot, died Tuesday, the university announced. He was 10.
We are saddened to announce that Uga X, fondly known as Que, died peacefully in his sleep earlier this morning.
Born May 27, 2013, he formally began his tenure in a collaring ceremony at the Georgia-Georgia Southern football game on Nov. 21, 2015. Que retired following the 2022… pic.twitter.com/Rqypoopavy
“He will always be remembered as a Damn Good Dawg,” the school said in a statement.
Uga X, otherwise known as Que, was born in 2013 and officially took over as the school’s mascot two years later. He spent eight seasons as the official mascot for the football team, and in that time, he oversaw two national championships, two SEC titles, seven New Year’s Six bowl game appearances and an incredible 91-18 overall record. He is by far the most decorated bulldog in program history.
Que retired after the 2022 season. His successor is Uga XI, otherwise known as Boom. The line of English bulldog mascots at Georgia dates to 1955 and is cared for by Charles Seiler and his family in Savannah, Georgia. English bulldogs typically live for eight to 12 years.
“Things will be a little different around the house for a while,” Seiler said in a statement. “Que traditionally starts barking for his breakfast around 5:30 a.m. This morning, Boom waited until 6 a.m. to let us know he was ready for his breakfast, so he’ll be a little later each day.”
