    R.I.P. - Sid, a loyal and true Bulldog



    It's with much sadness we mourn the passing of our beloved Sid.


    A regular feature at Bulldogs home games at Etihad Stadium for 7 years, Sid stood with us through thick and thin.

    Such sad news. RIP Sid.
    Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I'm very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.

    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Sid was a great mascot. I'll never forget him humping another teams mascot one day. Hilarious. Can't remember which team.

    It was the magpie but I believe that was the previous mascot Butch, not Sid.

    Poor Sid passed away just over a week after his twin sister Rosie.

    Our Bulldog is about to turn 8, thankfully being an Aussie she should have a longer life expectancy than a British.

    That was Butch, the short term mascot before Sid. His owner was less than easy to deal with so the club sacked him and brought in Sid.

    Sad to hear. Multitudes of supporters and I patted Sid after the long walk to the G for the Bulldog's final. He and his twin were too young to die. Gee the breed has a short lifespan.

    At least we gave him the chance to lead the boys out onto the 'G on Grand Final day. That would have to be the pinnacle of a mascot's career wouldn't it! 100 000 pounding hearts to one side with the boys forming up in a line behind you on the other.

    Sid did good.

    I love how it can be difficult to deal with someone walking a Bulldog from time to time in front of people.

    Never underestimate how big a tool someone can be once they think they've got some celebrity!

    The owner started demanding custom food be paid for by the club, private transport be provided for the dog to and from events, VIP privileges for the owners etc. The club's response was- yeah nah we'll get another dog, thanks anyway.
