Fan takes Auburn love to the extreme by dyeing dog to look like mascot

We all know the word fan comes from fanatic, so the lengths to which loyal supporters go for their teams should rarely surprise us.

Yet sometimes they still do.

Take Auburn Tigers fan Ron Sanford, who showed off his fandom by bringing his pet tiger, er, dog, to SEC media days.

That's Tiger Jake, a Maltese who spent a whole day at the groomer's to get all gussied up for the event, per NFL.com's Chase Goodbread. Of course, Sanford has an Auburn harness and leash to match.

At least the vibrant colors aren't as hard on the dog's eyes as on ours.
