Bryant's popularity even extends to the animal kingdom.

From a database of more than 465,000 pets insured by Veterinary Pet Insurance (indeed, it's medical coverage for dogs, cats, birds and exotic domesticated animals), 359 pets are named "Kobe," making it the 189th most popular name out of 65,536 pet names across the nation.

Five pets in the database are named "LeBron," two are named "Yao Ming," and there's a "Boston Garnett" along with a " Dirk Nowitzki."

The most unusual sports name in the pet world, however, might belong to a Yorkshire Terrier that answers to "Kobe Shaq Jackson."

I'm not so sure about Pau...would be kind of cute though...

Kobe is definitely on the list.

My friend has two dogs, one is Kobe and the other is Jordan.

Yeh that's true. We had two rabbits (both at different times) and we named them both Kobe. The first one died and the second one we gave away.

You just let Kobe walk?

Should have traded him, could have gotten a solid deal.

Oh yes, let's trade for another rabbit. :lol: But seriously, rabbits make such a mess and are a hassle to take care of. I've had all kind of pets before but man I know in the future when I have kids I'd be sure to not get any rabbits.
