Photos: Edgar the pug and other pets named after famous athletes

Posted by Holly Henke

Last week we published a story about pets named after Derek Jeter and other sports figures. We then invited readers to share photos of their own pets with a sport star's namesake. See the photos below. (Tip: Click on the notes for captions.)

Get the flash player here:

Send pictures of your pets -- with famous names or not -- to our Seattle Times Pets Flickr account by following the instructions below. We'll feature a selection in an upcoming post.

Some guidelines:

- 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.

Submissions are unpaid. Please see our Terms of Service, particularly the section under "License," about "user published content."

Email your photo now to

Thank you!
