Former Western Bulldogs Mascot Sid Passes Away
Announced late last night on Facebook, the former mascot of the Western Bulldogs football club passed away aged just shy of 10 years old.
Sid experienced breathing problems, and was rushed to Wyndham Veterinary Clinic.
“Over the years we have shared so many adventures. I’m honoured to have been there with him through the good times and bad,” said his owner.
“He loved being the Western Bulldogs mascot, he loved game day and the fans. God he loved the fans and he knew that the fans and the team loved him.
“Tonight I held his paw, kissed his wrinkled head and said goodbye to my little mate for the last time.
“Saying goodbye hurts, but I know that somewhere Sid and Rosie are together.
“I love ya my little mate, till we meet again.”
Sid was a regular fan and supported of the club, but retired from his position of club mascot in 2017.
The death of the British bulldog comes after his twin sister Rosie passed away in her sleep last week.
