Andy Murray didn't get to enjoy his gold and silver medals for long. One day after the Scotsman defeated Roger Federer for the Olympic singles gold medal, then earned a silver with fellow Brit Laura Robson in the mixed doubles, he had his medals "stolen" by his two border terriers, Maggie May and Rusty. The dogs proudly wore their owner's medals in a picture posted to Maggie May's Twitter page. (Yes, Andy Murray's dog has her own account with nearly 10,000 followers.)
"Here we go folks," it said, "just checking to make sure Rusty definitely has the silver, obviously."

The account was started last year and is reportedly ghostwritten by Murray's girlfriend, Kim Sears. She handles the posting because Maggie May and Rusty are more into Facebook.

I'm only slightly a dog person and completely against any animals wearing things meant for humans. But, man alive, that picture is cuter than the Dutch field hockey team photo. Maggie May cautiously eyeing Rusty's silver medal is glorious.
Here's Murray with the medals before his dogs got their paws on them.
