Pat Summitt's Dog, Sally Sue, Dies

Pat Summitt's yellow lab, Sally Sue, had to be euthanized Monday because of a brain tumor.

Katie Wynn, Summitt's secretary, said Tuesday the tumor was inoperable.

The 13-year-old dog was featured in the ESPN film "XO" and was seen comforting Summitt when she broke down while talking about her coaching career coming to an end.

Summitt's official biography on UTSports.com mentions Sally Sue twice: "(Summitt) has always been an intense, demanding, focused, bright-blue-steely-eyed competitor who is also a very caring, family-oriented person who enjoys a great walk on the beach with the family dogs, Sally Sue and Sadie."
