MY HAT IS off to St. Louis Blues player David Backes, who played for the U.S. men's hockey team in Sochi.
While he was there, he and his wife helped rescue two stray dogs. Click here for the link. He brought them back to St. Louis and they will be given good homes.
Sheryl and I have three rescue dogs and a rescue cat. They are the best pets. I salute Mr. Backes and I might even wish him and the Blues good luck, except if they are playing the Wings.
Hockey players do stuff like this all the time, and much of it falls below the radar. I'm glad this story got out.
Tucker, Fast Eddie, Lucy and Bella all agree, too!
