Football Fan Dog Valentino
First, I must say: I am not, never have been, and doubt I ever shall be a Pittsburgh Steelers fan! Back in the eighties I did root for the Denver Broncos on occasion.
On Sunday, January 17th of 2016, the Denver Broncos and the Pittsburgh Steelers played an AFC divisional football game. At the same time, frigid white flurries were falling to the ground here in central Ohio.
My dog Valentino donned his red sweater to keep warm while watching the televised football game with our roommate, Eric -- a die-hard Steelers fan -- while I was in my room on my computer. No longer a pro-football fan, I did hope the Steelers won, just so my roommate would not be disappointed. ( And I wouldn't have to hear the cussing or carrying on if they lost the game .)
Eric mentioned that while he doesn't usually care much for dogs dressed in clothes he thinks Valentino looks pretty good in his red dog sweater. He also referred to Valentino being a Steelers fan, oh my ! I laughed and said, "Maybe, but he's not wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers dog sweater!" To that Eric replied, "But if they play in the Super Bowl I might just have to get him one!"
Since the Steelers lost this game to the Broncos, it's safe to say Valentino and I were spared the spectacle of Pittsburgh colors on his dog sweater for at least another year!
