A New York Mascot

Wearing his NYC subway sweatshirt...
Photo by myself, before walking the dog.

Here he wears his current outfit, a sweatshirt proudly displaying the New York City subway logo.

I admit this photo is a cop out.

I am not thrilled with my stash of photos, it was cold and dreary outside, and Rupert was dying to be photographed (just look at that expression of longing!). If anyone could be a spokesperson for New York City, it would be this dog, despite being a Boston Terrier.

Rupert is a true New Yorker. He befriends dogs of every race, gender and persuasion. He works hard and plays hard. He is smart, having mastered several tricks before his 6 month birthday. He is friendly but sometimes aloof, when focused on a squeaky toy.

Rupert wishes you all a good Monday. Go get em!

Does your dog wear outfits regularly? I ask because, when walking by the sea in Brighton over Christmas, I noticed so many dogs were dressed in jackets of some ilk. I waxed lyrical about this to my wife, her opining that 'they are so cute' .... I'm saying 'They don't need jackets! They're covered in fur - nature's done it already, no?!?!?

Or am I missing something? Heh!

A Boston Terrier in love with NY! That's like a Finnish gal in love with Paris. The strongest of loves are often times the ones that were not destined to be. I'm so glad you let us take a peek of Rupert - the other day I thought about your doggie and wondered how he was doing. Very happily, I see;)

Aah, Rupert is so so sweet, what a cutie.I am such a dog lover, but we had to give our beloved Boxer away a few months back & I have never gotten over it!
Every time I see a dog, I want one again!

I totally agree with Ken mac! I love Rupert. He's gotten so big! & those eyes!
I also love how you describe New Yorkers-quite accurately I think.
