Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 10: Dogs Nicky, Rossi And...Gucci?

Nicky (center), Rossi (right) and Gucci (left).
Tom Bierly of Stafford, Virginia submitted this photo of his three dogs, (from left) Gucci, Nicky and Rossi. He included a note:

"Nicky, in the center, is named after Nicky Hayden. Rossi, on the right, is named after the GOAT, Valentino Rossi. Gucci, on the left, was named after a bag. I didn't name him, someone else did...if anyone asks, we call him 'Bubba.'

"Rossi and Nicky are Belgian Malinois...same parents, different litter. Gucci is a French Bulldog."
