I was throwing a ball for my dog, Matilda. Over-the-shoulder, flag, post, curl route, perfect.  The athleticism reminded me of CW. If you deem the topic worthy; which Michigan player does your pet bring to mind and why?

I have a golden retriever. She looks good in pink, she gets everything she wants, and she loves to drink (water) sounds oddly like most sorority sisters I sat near when I was a student...

Juno is a shutdown corner in a dog's body.  Compact, fast as hell, can change directions on a dime.  She's able to stay step for step with the little dogs on the outside and can help out on the run against the bigger dogs.  I'm gonna optimistically say Blake Countess.

German Shepherd is David Harris: slightly undersized for his breed, always aware of his surroundings, and when my other dogs goes crazy and runs back in forth across the yard my GSD charges from out of nowhere and lays him out regularly.

Pit-mix is Ernest Shazor: reckless, destroys things, more often then not completely whiffs when playing/fighting with my other dog, but when he connects you remember it.

Dog 1 (cockapoo) -Will Hagerup. Because she never follows the rules.

Dog 2 (yellow lab) - Vincent Smith. extremely bouncy and as loyal as loyal gets.

My younger cat, Leia, is Jeremy Gallon. She's small, runs crazy routes, and jumps higher than anyone expects.

My older cat, Oskar, is like Brady Hoke. Not a player, I know. He is big, does what he wants, goes outside in ridiculous weather (like Hoke in a T-shirt in 15 degrees). He acts like a mentor to my younger cat - hisses and growls when need be, but he clearly cares about her.

This is a fun thread.

Guinness is our English Bulldog. He reminds me of a mix between Jake Long with his shear strength and toughness, with a dash of Jake Ryan as there is nothing that makes him go around obstacles. Guinness runs through obstacles to make it to his target.

My german shepherd doesn't really seem like any Wolverines. He's very unpredictable. It's hard to get inside his head. One day he does everything I ask, the next day he runs my blood pressure up... Maybe he's like Al Borges

one of ours was bottle fed and is very friendly.   i'd say he's ed muransky or jumbo jon elliot, my buddies back in the day.

the sheep?  eh, skittish, real dumb, don't want to lay that on one of our present wolverines.  same with the chickens.

barn cat is hell on wheels and a very cool customer, not to mention tough as nails as he has never been indoors.   and i'd nominte him for a charles woodson award

Used to have two. Now down to one.

The one still living is a whippet mix. I'm going to go with Steve Breaston. When she runs, she is amazingly fast and agile. Most of the time she's sleeping. Overall, a really nice dog though.

The chocolate lab we had was named Kirby for Kirby Puckett which she lived into that personality completely. A little battle tank which was always happy and ready to play. If I were to liken her to a Michigan player, it would probably be A-Train, when we walked, she put her head down and got from A to B. Great between the tackles but you wouldn't want her getting loose because she would run all day. (yes, she held on to the ball)

He is a jacked 95 pounds... once he gets going anything in front of him gets messed up.  He likes to hunt Lions as well.  Guess that makes him like Alan Branch.

Tia reminds me of Denard Robinson........'s shoe.  Because she's about the same size, and while everyone else is running past her, she's just lying there.

Well, he's named Woodson Schembechler. But, probably best understood as Jordan Kovacs As Explained By Fred Jackson:

Blond, probably at the lower end of his size/weight class. But extreme athleticism, commitment, and always doing something surprising. Except he's actually terrifyingly athletic (standing high jump to the top of a 6 foot retaining wall for no reason besides he the fact he could).
