Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 45: Hopper The Dog

Hopper The Dog, With Two Of His Humans, Ian and Erin Richards..
Jeff Richards of Minot, North Dakota sent in this photo, with a note:

"This is 'Hopper,' named after John (Hopper) Hopkins, sitting alongside my boy Ian and my daughter Erin back in 2008 just prior to his first Mother's Day. We were keeping the new flowers outside for both sun and safe-keeping away from my wife Becky's prying eyes....we see how well that went!"
