Smilin' Like a Butcher's Dog

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins teamed up with Walgreens in order to present the first ever Pet Supply collecting benefiting the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center. While donations of food, treats and toys were collected at the Jan. 31 match up against the Toronto Maple Leafs, fans on Facebook and Twitter ‘pawed’ into the initiative by showing their love for furry friends and Penguins hockey.


Check out some of these guys. They share names with some pretty familiar individuals...





To the left is Gonchar, dog of @iJamieKelly and all around happy pup. 

The reptilian Penguins Pal to the right is named Pascal and lives with @ShannonF817.


Geno may lead the NHL in points, but his namesakes likely enjoy other past times. Meet @AshMassart7’s adorable Geno the kitten and the all-Pittsburgh sports fan Geno the puppy, who belongs to @nataliemerz_.







And if these don't get you smilin' like a butcher's dog, we've got a whole photo album here.
