The NCAA is opening an investigation into the recruitment of basketball-playing dog, Fetch. NCAA officials allege that the University of Kentucky Wildcats coach, John Calipari broke dozens of rules when bringing the highly touted pooch to Lexington.
There is no rule against a dog playing basketball, but there are rules against a prospect receiving gifts to influence their decision to play for a particular team. It is alleged that Fetch received personalized basketball shoes, treats, and even a large dog house.
Coach Calipari’s entire recruiting history is now being called into question. See the news cast below from Sports Dome, explaining the allegations in further detail. Hopefully this can get straightened out so we can get back to watching Fetch play basketball. He’s a good boy.
The Dogington Post is serious about dogs, but we like to have a little fun, too! Happy April Fool’s Day! But, since we’ve got your attention:
Only a fool would buy a puppy from a pet store! It’s a known fact that 99% of all pet store puppies came from puppy mills. National Mill Dog Rescue rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes retired commercial breeding dogs from puppy mills. NMDR gives these dogs a new beginning and a final chance to find happiness and comfort in a loving home. Run almost solely by volunteers, NMDR has pledged to put an end to the cruelty of the puppy mill industry. Through widespread informative efforts, National Mill Dog Rescue hopes to educate the public to acquire their companion animals through reputable breeders or better yet, from shelters and rescue groups across the country. Please support the efforts on NMDR, by volunteering or making a donation at www.milldogrescue.org
