Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 40: Rossi The Border Collie

Rossi The Border Collie.
Racer Barry Burke of Laguna Nigel, California sent in this photo, with a note:

"This is Rossi, our border collie. She goes nuts at the sight or sound of a motorcycle and loves MotoGP. She also does a good job herding her little brother Beckham and is an excellent child retrieval system.

"Her humans are Barry, Trisha and Beckham Burke."
