Alex Ovechkin loves dogs.

He has four German Shepherds at home in Russia, a black Lab here in D.C. and for the past three seasons, has participated in the “Caps Canine Calendar” to benefit Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. Last Monday, he posed with two shelter dogs in front of the U.S. Capitol Building for the 2017 calendar, which will feature hockey players holding pups in front of Washington landmarks.

“I’m definitely a dog person,” Ovechkin told us. "They're part of families, and they’re very smart. If you’re in a bad mood, they always help you bounce back.”

The team captain appeared very patient with the dogs, and helped coax Toby and Chewy stay still and look at the camera.

We also caught up with Braden Holtby in front of the U.S. Supreme Court Building. The goaltender said he’d definitely have a dog at home if his wife didn’t suffer from allergies.
