    Rhys Hoskins, Jayme Burmudez and Rookie

    NBC Sports Philadelphia sat down with Philadelphia Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins and his fiancée Jayme Burmudez to get to know their cute dog named Rookie.

    He is a 2-year-old English Golden Retriever who Hoskins had his eyes set on for years. It took some convincing to get Jayme on board with the idea of a dog though.

    "He had Rookie's name picked out before Rookie even existed by like three years," Jayme told us. "Rookie is always happy, always content with whatever he's doing."

    "Who doesn't love a dog," Hoskins added.
