The San Francisco Giants legend and his sister Cheryl Dugan entered his miniature schnauzer named Rocky in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show over the weekend.
Rocky didn’t come out victorious, but Bonds was just happy that his dog was able to compete in one of the most prestigious dog shows in the world.

Wasabi, a Pekingese, won Best in Show, the competition’s highest honor.
Bonds retired from Major League Baseball in 2007 after a wildly successful 22-year career. He spent seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates before spending the final 15 years of his career with the Giants.
The 56-year-old is MLB’s home run king (762) and retired as a .298 hitter with 2,935 hits and 1,996 RBI.
Bonds is a seven-time MVP, 14-time All-Star, eight-time Gold Glover, 12-time Silver Slugger and three-time Major League Player of the Year. He also won the batting title twice.
