Michael Phelps’ Dogs Pose with Super Bowl Trophy?

Michael Phelps: 18-time Olympic gold medalist. Fan of the Baltimore Ravens. Friend of Baltimore Ravens player, Ray Lewis. Phelps credits Lewis with inspiring him to return to swimming to compete in the 2012 Olympics. He won six more medals, including four gold, and then retired after the Games.

Somehow, Phelps snagged the Vince Lombardi Trophy (or the Tiffany Trophy as it is sometimes known, after Tiffany & Co., the famed jeweler that makes the trophy). He then posed each of his dogs next to the trophy and snapped up some photos. The New Barker dog magazine heard from  a spokesdog for the Puppy Bowl dogs, who are understandably steamed. “We do all the heavy lifting, and those Phelps’ dogs get all the glory,” said the spokes dog.

The Ravens may have won Super Bowl XLVII. But the champs here are Herman and Stella. And we heard they’re heading to Disney World.
