Dog of the Day: Sir Otis Wellington the (Almost) English Bulldog Puppy

Sir Otis Wellington (a 4-month-old almost English bulldog puppy) is called ‘Otie’ to his friends, of which I absolutely guarantee you are one. You needn’t call beforehand… just drop by, he will be delighted to see you at any time of the day or night. If you ask nicely, he will show you his leaf collection, which is quite extensive and well worth viewing. He also has an extremely nice vintage of San Francisco Hetch-Hetchy water (15 minutes ago, perhaps a trifle young, but delicate and playful with just the tiniest hint of a chlorine bite) set out in an extra dog bowl, just for visitors.

Just don’t make any derogatory comments about beagles. Despite his very proper English appearance, one of his great-grandparents was actually an all-American beagle, and he’s therefore a bit sensitive about such things.
