Washington Capitals forward Dustin Penner has already become a fan favorite thanks to his hard-nosed style of play. If you needed an excuse to like Dustin Penner, I’ve found you a good one. He has two dogs. One of them came with him on the bus to the airport to head back to DC. Instagram expert Alex Ovechkin was all over it.

According to a recent interview with the Washington Post, his parents are taking care of his two dogs while he plays for the Capitals.  Here’s a picture of his two dogs Jerry (on the left) and Ryback (on the right and in the video).

Their tails must be wagging after the way their daddy played in California!
