Olympians and their four-legged fans

Training for the Olympics is hard work. Many of this year's athletes are lucky to have their pets around to support them. My friends over at have compiled interviews and photos of this years American Winter Olympiads with their very special pets.

Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis has her Yorkie named Gidget (pictured here), but her love of pets doesn't stop there--she is also a spokesperson for the ASPCA, and hopes to open her home to another rescue dog after the winter games.

Freestyle skier Pat Deenan has a barn-load of pets cheering him on--a horse, a donkey, a miniature donkey, two cats, and three dogs named Hershey, Crunchy, and Munchy. has many more profiles and pictures--find out if your favorite athlete is a pet lover like you! All the more reason to cheer them on in the upcoming winter games. But their #1 fans are of the four legged variety.
