Jason Aldean Has His Very Own Georgia Bulldog
Jason Aldean's new English Bulldog, Athens, is ready for some football! "She has her own personal Georgia Bulldog jersey to wear on game day," Jason told The Boot during an interview just prior to a Nashville party for his No. 1 hit 'Big Green Tractor.' "She's rockin', she's good."
The singer and his family have had the pooch for a little over six months, and he says his wife and girls love her. "She's fitting right in; she's cool. She probably weighs 35 to 40 pounds now, so she's getting big. She has those big teeth and she's solid white. And like all bulldogs, she's very stubborn."
Athens can wear her Georgia Bulldogs jersey proudly. She is the great-granddaughter of Uga, the mascot for the Georgia football team. She can trace her mother's family back to 1956, when the first English bulldog in this particular line became a team mascot. Ever since then, the team has always had a mascot named Uga (using the University of Georgia's abbreviation).
Jason watches the games when he can, and when he's home, of course, Athens is right at his side on the couch, showing off her brand-new jersey and cheering the team on. Just what one would expect from the granddaughter of a legendary mascot.
