Dog of the Day: Rupert the Golden Retriever

Well, I just took a quick look, earlier, and discovered that today is pretty much the one year anniversary of me starting this blog. I’m feeling pretty good about managing to stick to it fairly reliably for that long. We shall see what the new year brings.

In the mean time, here are my first pictures of Rupert, a golden retriever who lives in our neighborhood. We’ve run into him quite a few times but we haven’t gotten any pictures that are up to even my standards until yesterday.

(Four more pictures stowed below the break. They are worth the effort this time, I promise!)

This is Rupert's usual pose when he's waiting for mom/dad outside the Chameleon Cafe (our neighborhood coffee shop).

Rupert only gets up for people he knows will pet him. He has us nailed as easy marks.

Golden retriever expressions can be divided into two groups: happy and soulful. Rupert is a master of the soulful look.

Rupert has a part-time job as a peace-and-contentment radiator, looks like.

To quote Gamble Rogers: ...(he'll) lay his grizzled snoot up on your knee and look up at you with those big limpid brown eyes and say 'I love you, I'm a dawg.'

  1. Hi Adam and Autumn,

    First of all Happy Blogaversary! Hey, I’m Malika and I was looking at the pics on your blog and the photos are adorable! I’m working with Macy’s to spread the word about a pet friendly event at Macy’s Union Square. I’m sure as a dog lover (I read your story of your quest to find a pet friendly apartment – how sad and touching at the same time), you’re very familiar with Cesar Millan, the dog whisperer. He’ll be there for a special meet and greet and book signing.

    Here are the details of the event:

    When: This coming Saturday, December 11th – 1 pm
    What: He’ll sign copies of his book and share tips on how to create a pet-friendly environment in your home.
    Where: Macy’s Union Square – The Cellar

    Adam and Autumn, please let me know if you’d be interested in attending or spreading the word about the event on your blog. If you think this would be of interest to your readers, I can provide you with a copy of Cesar’s book, Cesar’s Rules: Your Way to Train a Well Behaved Dog. However, I can’t guarantee the book will arrive before Cesar’s demo. Cesar may be available for a few minutes to chat with bloggers, so let me know if this is of interest to you.


    Let me know if I can answer any questions.
