Like race horses, racing dog names are quirky and almost entirely commonplace phrases parsed for humor.

One particular dog, Rob Gronkowski, is named after the Patriots' all-pro tight end and has been making waves in greyhound racing, winning five of his last six races in Florida, according to BustedCoverage.

This greyhound is so good, he's now being placed into "Grade A" competition.

Of course this dog is making waves. He's named after a player that is the best in the world at his position. There's no reason an animal named after him shouldn't live up to the standard.

Only half serious here.
