Doggone It, Rupert is 6 Months Old

Terrier Mayhem
Photo by myself at a Boston Terrier meeting in Soho.

Perhaps 40 or so Boston Terriers convened not too long ago in a pet store. There was much running about, licking, sniffing, prancing and playing. Apologies for the poor photo, these guys could not sit still!

Despite what you might think, there was enough variation in color, markings and collars among the dogs that you could tell where your dog was. It was an exciting couple hours that was enjoyed by all.


Mark and I took Rupert, our Boston Terrier, to a Meet Up for Boston Terriers a week ago.

Typically New Yorkers take their dogs to parks, where they remain on leash, or dog runs, where they can run around off the leash. The dog runs are contained areas typically covered with gravel. Sometimes there are smaller pens nearby where small dogs can play amongst themselves.

These meetings where only one breed of dog meet are different. One in particular is called the Dachshund Parade. Hundreds of dachshunds (those little weiner dogs) meet in Washington Square Park every April and October, and I can only imagine what it's like.

Anyway, here's the latest video from Rupert, who is now 6 months old:

Psst! You can let your dog off leash in parks, too. There are rules (you're in Park Slope, right?) google FIDO Brooklyn for the skinny. Great way to socialize the pooch, get to know a lot of people and get some exercise. Fab source of information when something weird comes up, too.
