Maverick and Goose

Meet Maverick and Goose, whose names honor two of America's greatest fictional Cold War heroes, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell and his partner Nick "Goose" Bradshaw, who trained during the 1980s at the US Navy's Fighter Weapons School in San Diego, California, before a tragic accident led to Bradshaw's death.

While the canine Maverick and Goose don't feel as much "need for speed" as their cinema counterparts, they do enjoy "long walks, playing fetch (or keep away), and spending as much time with their humans Troy & Shelby Engholm," writes Shelby, who serves as athletic trainer for Niwot High's sports teams. They are also "huge Broncos fans," and were relieved to see the team get their first win of the 2019 season on Sunday.
