Shark Life: Dog On Ice

by Nickey Tygesen & Ann Frazier /

BARKING NEWS: An SAP Center bomb dog has been stealing the hearts of thousands!

Bazil the bomb dog is no ordinary doggo; he is one of the multiple dogs sniffing around SAP Center for bombs. But on Tuesday night while the Sharks were in the process of beating the Edmonton Oilers, he did much more than protect the fans - he stole the show when he briefly took the ice during the game.

After being briefly walked onto the ice by SJ Sharkie during the first intermission, Bazil took the opportunity to roll around on the playing surface, and then get a couple of licks in (literally) for good measure. 

And after being caught on camera, Bazil went viral. 

Tweet from @sjsharkie:

Of course, this isn't the first time a critter has gotten onto the ice at SAP Center. Sharks fans will remember the 2016 playoff series against the Nashville Predators, when a black cat scampered onto the ice pregame. Jo Pawvelski, as the cat was later dubbed, was eventually adopted by Sharks foward Patrick Marleau and his family. 

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Happy #InternationalCatDay to our favorite feline! #BlackCatoftheTank

Safe to say, we are all looking forward to seeing more of Bazil as the season progresses.
