DeMarcus Cousins Mourns Death of Dog On His Sneakers (Photo)

It is a cold world.

Cousins probably not a fan of Michael Vick.

During the middle of the Kings’ miserable second-half performance Wednesday against the visiting San Antonio Spurs, Reporter Ailene Voisin noticed what appeared to be an autograph or some other personal writing on the sides of DeMarcus Cousins’ white sneakers. When she saw the shoes afterward in the locker room, the writing clearly read, “R.I.P. Roscoe.”

When she asked DeMarcus about it, the Kings center immediately became animated, telling me that his 18-week-old bulldog died last week after suffering an allergic reaction to a bee sting. “He just collapsed in his crate while I was on our last road trip,” said Cousins, who lives with his boyhood friend Andrew Rogers. “We had an autopsy done and everything because we wanted to know what happened. The (veterinarian) said it was from a bee sting.”

Cousins plans on getting another dog soon.

But, I am pouring out some Scooby Snacks for the Lil Homie Roscoe.
