Winter Olympians and Their Dogs
Athletes love ‘em, too!
Winter athletes love snow, ice, high speeds, high risks and dogs.

If you are addicted to the Olympics, as I am, you probably find it fun to know as much as possible about the lives of the athletes. Most have made a lifetime of sacrifices for their sport and to pursue excellence in it. Many credit the love and support of family with helping them to achieve their goals of competing at the highest level at the Olympics. For a large number of Olympians, that family includes pets, and these mighty athletes are just as in love with their dogs as the rest of us are with ours. Check out the pets of your favorite Olympic athletes and read what they have to say about them.
