Tails of Seattle: A pets blog
Got a pet named for a famous athlete?
Posted by Judy Averill
As he closes in on 3,000 hits, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has inspired many to name their pets after him. Read the story on our website.
Reading about all the cats and dogs named Jeter reminded me of LeBron, the very athletic Lab that plays down the street from our house. He's named after basketball player LeBron James. Could there be a pup or cat named Ichiro, A-Rod, Felix, Apolo or maybe Sue Bird in your home?
If you have a pet named after a famous athlete, send us a photo of it.
Send pictures of your pets to our Seattle Times Pets Flickr account by following the instructions below. We'll feature a selection in an upcoming post.
- Please put a short title of the photo in the email subject line. (Example: Felix, fetch! or Run, Edgar, run!)
-In the body of the email, please include a very brief caption and your name (and the photographer's name, if different) so that we may properly credit the photo.
- Please attach only one picture per email.
