Brees barks his way around his Lafayette, Indiana neighborhood on Tuesday
What's in a name? You might have big paws to fill if you're named after Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. Via jconline:
Brees the red dachshund often becomes confused when his owners watch the New Orleans Saints' football games on television.
Lafayette's Karen Kepner -- who owns the dog along with her mother -- laughed this week when she recounted the scene that typically ensues when Brees hears references to his namesake, former Purdue University quarterback and current Saints star Drew Brees.
"He'll watch the Saints games with my mom. When she'll holler -- 'Go Brees!' -- he'll ... try to figure out what she wants," Kepner said.
