This week, Scott Van Pelt announced on Twitter that his family has a new addition. It’s a new puppy that goes by the name of Redd.
Van Pelt went incredibly viral when he gave an incredible eulogy for Redd’s predecessor, Otis. he did so through tears and heartbreak.
On Wednesday, his new dog pooped in the house on camera. It happened while SVP was recording an episode of Slow News Day with The Ringer’s Kevin Clark.
Pooping in the house usually gets a pet owner upset, but when you experience heartbreak like SVP did, you learn to appreciate the little things in life, even if they are a little smelly.
Van Pelt joined ESPN in early 2001 as the network’s lead professional golf reporter, shortly thereafter becoming a SportsCenter anchor and later a co-host on ESPN Radio.
