“I love dogs and it is amazing to see how through the Guide Dogs for the Blind program they can really help change and save lives,” Klay Thompson, who owns an English Bulldog name Rocco, told Warriors.com. “Rocco is one of my best friends… and I’m honored [they] chose to name their latest puppy after me.”
