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."
Do you have a pet named after a famous racer, or know someone else who has a pet named after a famous racer?
Send an in-focus pet photo (as a jpeg file) along with the name of the pet and the name of their human or humans, to firstname.lastname@example.org . The photo may be featured on roadracingworld.com during slow news days.
