Moment of paws: Canadian sports pets

161

Olympic.ca is currently featuring a series exploring sports fans.

Happy Halloween everybody! Who is dressing up as their favourite athlete or going as a fan of their team?

This may sound kind of weird, but people aren’t the only sports fans out there. Animals also love to support their team (usually the same as their owner’s team).

From dogs and cats to pigs and mice, any pet can be a sports fan, you just have to convince them.

If you have ever put a shirt or costume on your pet, then you probably found out how much they love it (or absolutely hate it), but how else are they going to cheer on the team?

MLS

Like many Canadians, apparently pets aren’t enthused enough about the MLS yet to show their support.
