On Sunday night Alex Ovechkin introduced the world to his dogs using Instagram. I did not know this, but he has five of them and they are all German Shepherds. And they are all ready for bedtime.
There’s Gera. She’s tuckered out. Ovi got her during the 2010 World Championships in Germany. Getting a German Shepherd from actual Germany makes it more authentic.
Then there’s Roy, who is pretty exhausted. Ovi doesn’t pronounce the name all French like Patrick Roy, but you gotta wonder if that was the inspiration.
Say hi to Bertha, straight-up passed out. I’m going to go ahead and assume her first name is Big.
Clearly named in tribute to CSN’s intrepid reporter, Chuck is taking a much-needed nap.
Finally, meet Ovi. Yeah. Ovi named a dog after himself. He probably had a big day and needs rest.
There you have it– five beautiful and beautifully named dogs, all in various states of rest. They’ve probably been backchecking all day. Yeah, that’s it.
Or maybe their baths were just really intense.
