I spotted and photographed this Wheaton Terrier a while back at the Egleston Farmers Market Dog Day, but never was able to get the full scoop from his human. So for now, he’ll just have to be yet another handsome face on J.P. Dogs. Such is life. (Continue for more photos) (more…)
I met these costumed lovelies at this past Saturday’s JP Dog Costume Parade, which was basically the highlight of my month. Seriously if you didn’t go, well you’re crazy. Go next year. This pup was the gentlest, sweetest lion I’ve ever met. (more…)

Though Nugget’s a Cambridge dog, I met this little lady in J.P. at the Egleston Farmer’s Market Dog Day. And wow, did I fall hard for her. So did everyone who saw her. In a matter of minutes she became an instant celebrity. I practically wanted her autograph. So of course she makes the cut for our “Sometimes We Let the Neighbors In” category. Thanks to Everett Hoffman, who was dog sitting Nugget, for brightening our day with a visit from this little Nugget. (more…)
I met Huxley (the black and white dog), and his friend Boone, a rescued black lab / Chow mix (also a JP Dog!) at Dog Day.
Dog: Huxley (named after Aldous Huxley of course) is a thirteen month old rescued Black Lab mix (Aussie Sheparad, Collie, and ?). He also goes by Hux, Puppy Huxtable, and Hux-edo. (more…)
Here’s yet another beautiful dog I had the pleasure of meeting at Dog Day. I also had the pleasure of meeting Sophie, Smith’s human mama, who is at the helm of J.P.’s newest dog walking service, Boston Fetch. (Sophie is awesome; if you’re looking for dog-walking, you’ll be so pleased to work with her!)
Dog: Smith is a one year old dog,who was rescued from a shelter in New Hampshire when he was three months old. But originally he came all the way from Tennessee. “We think he’s shepherd and golden and maybe something else. We’re not sure where he got his long legs from.” (more…)
I had the pleasure of meeting this dapper little man, and his human mom, at last Saturday’s Dog Day at Egleston Farmer’s Market. His mom, an active volunteer at MSPCA Angell, talked to attendees about adoptable dogs, while the little guy acted as ambassador and charmed us all. (more…)
I met this amazing dog at last Saturday’s Dog Day at the Egleston Farmers Market. I was talking to a couple of guys, and they asked, “You’ve met Vegas, right?” They looked shocked that I hadn’t met her yet, as if to say “Vegas is THE J.P. Dog.” (more…)
The first “Dog Day” at Egleston Farmer’s Market was a canine success! The event was the brainchild of Kate Peppard, who founded and runs this beautiful farmers market, and Sophie Amos, who recently launched J.P.’s newest dog walking service, Boston Fetch, and enthusiastically sponsored the event.
Last Sunday there was a Corgi meetup at J.P.’s Beecher Street Dog Park. This meetup rotates their gatherings all over Greater Boston, so not all the doggies were from J.P. (more…)
