Rossi, The Bulldog From Colombia. Seen here with two-time AMA Pro Champion Martin Cardenas.
Racer Santiago Villa sent in a photo of his bulldog Rossi hanging out with fellow racer Martin Cardenas, along with an overly-enthusiastic note:
"It's my great honor to introduce the most amazing pet in the world, Sir Valentino Rossi Villa (Villa is his second last name, as we use in Latin America.)
"He is a three-year-old English Bulldog that farts a lot, eats a lot and loves to be petted by girls and AMA Pro Champions like Tomas Puerta, David Gaviria and Martin Cardenas. Also this amazing dog has been linked as the secret love of Manuela Carreño, Tomy Puerta's girlfriend!"
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 email@example.com . The photo may be featured on roadracingworld.com during slow news days.
