Poor Ugas. Hopefully the overheating Ugas and early death will make people think twice about buying one.

The photo of Uga I saw showed he was terribly overweight. I don't know who was caring for him, but that was probably the cause of his heart attack. He didn't die of heat stroke. Bulldogs are wonderful dogs and sadly, I think in the past 10 years judge's preferences have led to even less healthy dogs. The trend could be reversed in a few generations and the good qualities of the dog preserved.
