South African coach names his dog "Sachin"

By mz.000

South Africa bowling coach Vincent Barnes admitted on Tuesday he's missing Sachin - his dog Sachin that is, not the Indian batting superstar in whose honour he's named.

"Sachin is not here, I am missing him already," Barnes told the Midday newspaper.

"Obviously I couldn't bring him along, what with all the travelling but there are enough people back home to take care of him."

Barnes named his dog after Sachin Tendulkar, his favourite batsman.

I could not stop laughing at the second comment by a poster on that news:

"Think about it, Mr.Vincent Barnes gets to clean Sachins sh*t everyday and considers himself lucky doing that!!! May the good Lord bless him! "... now that is positive thinking...:)

"Barnes named his dog after Sachin Tendulkar, his favourite batsman" this is all that matters since after all the doggie is much loved by his owner!

I think we should take it in the right spirit. The dog is certainly cute and lovable and just think even if he hated Sachin he will be reminded of him each time he calls out to his dog. also just because he has named his dog Sachin does not diminsh the talent of Sachin.

this look like 'hate' instead of 'love'. otherwise no one will name loved ones to their dogs.

its funny a dog name is Sachin
