LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - University of Kentucky Basketball coach John Calipari shared on his website some sad news.
Coach Cal says his family has had to put their German Shepherd Dash to sleep.
Calipari said Dash was 9 years old and suffered from an unspecified medical problem before passing away.
He said the dog fell ill and the series of events leading up to the family's decision to put him to sleep happened within 24 hours.
