MILWAUKEE -- You know you’re popular when you have your face on a cookie! It’s just one of the many Hank tributes people brought to Opening Day!

Hank the dog had a busy schedule! He was hounded by the paparazzi, went to batting practice, and even spent time at the dugout.

“I just want to hug him and cuddle him,” remarks Hank fan Judy Benson. “He’s so cuddleable.”

It’s a Cinderella story that’s touched many hearts: the stray-dog-turned superstar has captured Judy Benson’s heart completely!

“I read about it in the paper, and I follow him – his reports, and I think he’s just great,” adds Benson.

His face isn't just all over the news! It’s even on cookies!

“I just think he’s special.” Adds Sandra Mathis. She bought boxes of Hank-themed cookies. “I mean, how many people can just walk on a field and be adopted like that?”

Hank didn't stay for the whole game. He has to get his rest before Tuesday, when he’s expected to get neutered.
