Professional athletes are obviously very talented in their respective fields – a lot more than the average Joe. And, hey, that’s pretty awesome but you know what makes some of those athletes even cooler? Their adorable relationship with their pups! Seeing a huge football player or tough boxer, whatever the athlete’s profession, seeing them gush over their pups is enough to melt even a Grinch’s heart. Take a look at these 20 famous athletes who are thankful for their pups.
Manny Pacquiao and Pacman
Boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao, is no stranger to grueling exercise day in, day out. However, when it comes to his little champion, Pacman – it’s Manny who has to keep up. The tiny Jack Russell may be small and ferocious but he’s got plenty strength and speed. In 2015, Manny fought against Floyd Mayweather but it was the appearance of Pacman that was the main event.
