Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 55: Rossi The Cockapoo

Rossi The Cockapoo.
Bengt Brakstad of San Diego, California sent in this photo, with a note:

"Rossi is a Cockapoo. Owners are Bengt & Theresa Brakstad. Theresa wanted a dog, I didn't. She said I could name him after a motorcycle racer, so I caved and we added Rossi to our family. His personality is very much like VR46!"
