BOSTON (AP) — Fenway is going to the dogs.

Even as the defending World Series champion Red Sox plummet to the bottom of the AL standings, their ballpark is atop of a list of favorite pet names in Boston. Other Red Sox-themed names making the list were: Teddy, for Hall of Famer Ted Williams; Wally, for the Red Sox mascot; Tessie, for the team’s punk rock theme song; and Tek, the nickname of former catcher Jason Varitek.

The Patriots also had a presence on the list with Bruschi, for former linebacker Tedy Bruschi, and Brady, which needs no explanation. Completing the list were Copley, Bruin and Boston.

The list was compiled by Wellness Natural Pet Foods in conjunction with “Rescue the Runway,” a benefit for pet rescue charities endorsed by Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli.
