If you’re a University of Georgia football fan, then you likely know all about their beloved bulldog mascot. They started with Uga in 1956. Ever since, the Seiler family has kept up the original Uga’s lineage, making way for Uga X. This beloved dog retired just last year. Today, it was announced that he passed away. Now, fans from all over are wishing for this dear pup to rest in peace — not only as Uga X, but his personal name, Que.

During his eight-season tenure, Georgia was 91-18, won two national championships, two SEC titles, and made seven New Year’s Six bowl appearances. Que contributed to these wins, of course, by being his adorable self on the sidelines at games.
Needless to say, fans are heartbroken over the news of the 10-year-old’s passing. Though, there is certainly comfort in knowing that he died peacefully and at home in Savannah, Georgia with the Seiler family.
