In only his second season as Georgia's beloved mascot, Uga VII has passed away.

The dog's owner, Sonny Seiler, said Uga VII died Thursday morning of an apparent heart attack.

"It was so unexpected," Seiler said.

There won't be a replacement bulldog this season.

Since 1956, Georgia's mascot has come from a line of solid-white English bulldogs named Uga and owned by the Seiler family.
