Look, no sports makes content creating tough these days. But I saw a trend social media that sparked a fun idea. It was “see a dog, send a dog,” which is basically encouraging people to show off their dogs and give us all a little timeline cleanse.
So I wanted to do something similar by showing off some of our National Team athletes’ pets. It took a lot of Instagram creeping (and permission to use the photos, of course) but I’ve put together a fun list that will hopefully make your day a little brighter!
David Taylor and his cats Coco and Maizy
Bo Nickal and his dog Saint
Ty Walz and his pups Tots and GiGi
John Stefanowicz and his horse Archie. Fun fact, Archie is the great grandson of Secretariat!
Definitely our biggest addition to the family, Archibald has been our pet project. We have had this big old racehorse for about 6 months letting him enjoy the fun life and he lives up to the stereotypical “Gentle Giant”. #racehorse #pet #family #project #derby #lanesendfarm #secretariat #mineshaft #apindy
Also, John Stefanowicz’s dog Atlas
Joe Rau’s feisty feline Lilly. She’s only six months old…omg
Adam Coon and his plot hound Bella
Sarah Hildebrandt’s lounging cat Layan
