'Pup-dated' photos of Isaiah Crowell's national signing day dog

Remember that cute puppy former Carver running back Isaiah Crowell held up to announce he had chosen to sign with Georgia on national signing day? Well, he's all grown up now.

The dog's owner, Georgia superfan Mike "Big Dawg" Woods - whom you may know as the overall-clad man with the Bulldog painted atop his shaved head - sent me a few pictures this week of that pup and some of his kin, and I thought I'd share them.

First up is Isaiah The Big Dawg Woods, the puppy Crowell held up on national signing day and who apparently got a new name from the experience. Woods said the dog now weighs 46 pounds, so that's a lot of growing he's done since February. Notice those black flecks around the dog's eye - those aren't part of his coloration; some ink rubbed off from the photos Woods sent me.

Next is one of Woods, head paint and all, holding up two of Isaiah the Big Dawg Woods' sisters, neither of which had a name before being sold.

And finally here's a shot of one of the pups from the previous photo.

Woods said he has offered Georgia the Crowell puppy as the next Uga but has not heard back. From what I know of Georgia football lore, the Seiler family has provided the dogs for a while, so that sounds like a tough nut to crack for Woods and his puppies. But Isaiah the Big Dawg Woods has the right lineage: Uga VI was is uncle, and Ugas I-V were his grandfathers, Woods said.

And finally, if you're not familiar with Woods, here's a short feature Raycom Sports did on him.

P.S.Sorry about the terrible pun in the headline; I couldn't resist.
