*** UPDATED x1 *** Monday puppy pics

Monday, Jan 13, 2014

* Gov. Pat Quinn’s Yorkshire Terrier passed away last year. He was heartbroken, but he started looking around for a new puppy a couple months ago and finally found one. Her name is “Rosie.” Let’s welcome her to the fold…

I’ve joked that Oscar is the most “famous” puppy dog in all of Illinois. He appears now to have some serious competition.

Also, considering what I’ve written about the guv over the years, I really doubt the two will have a “play date” any time soon.

* Meanwhile, I was on my way to a funeral Saturday and Jim Riemer sent me a pic of his tiny dog to cheer me up…

Riemer’s house is like something you’d see in Better Homes & Gardens. His back yard is straight out of Architectural Digest. He has a beautiful wife and two great looking kids. But his mouse-sized dogs (they both look like the one above)… well… um… wow. They both have very sweet dispositions, though, and Jim loves them with all his heart, so whattayagonnado?

* And just because I want to, here’s a photo of Oscar on his favorite couch yesterday…

*** UPDATE *** From Grant Klinzman…

Does Oscar do this too? Was trying to work yesterday and my dog fell asleep on the keyboard. Really benefitted the folks whose work I was editing and couldn’t hit delete.

The pic…

Heh.

    Hey Rich, Is “Oscar the Puppy” a Wheaton terrier? There’s one in my building named Franklin who looks and asks like Oscar.


  2. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 9:44 am:

    Yep.


  3. - Pius - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 9:52 am:

    Rich, Do you have any idea as to what kind of dog your friend Jim Riemer has?


  4. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 9:56 am:

    No, Pius. He told me once. They’re a crossbreed is all I remember.


  5. - Both - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 10:02 am:

    Looking forward to the invites…Mr & Mrs. Oscar & Rosie Miller

    It looks like a set of production stills from “Best in Show.”

    There’s no such thing as an ugly dog.

    Thought for sure Quinn would name a new pet “Squeezy”!!!


  9. - Loop Lady - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 11:00 am:

    You are turning into such an ol’ softie Rich-
    when it comes to dogs that is….

    It’s always fun when my small cat decides to take a walk across my laptop keyboard. I’ve learned to close the lid when I step away from the computer.

    I love that Quinn has a dog. Loving dogs gentles the soul, and nobody who loves dogs could be too bad a person. My baby — an English Cocker — has been in the ER for five days, and she will come home today. Great pics and videos of her here: https://www.facebook.com/peetieneedsyourhelp

    not to degrade pooch collector and State Comptroller Judy Barr Topinka…

    My opinion of PQ just went up.


  14. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 12:45 pm:

    Oscar looks very “official” and dignified in that photo, Rich. Did he see the photo of Rosie before striking that pose and chase after you this morning until you published it?


  15. - Joan P. - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 2:49 pm:

    I guess Quinn can’t be all bad, not with such a cute puppy.


  16. - Just The Way It Is One - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    Ah…awake or asleep, important or a nobody as Master, ya just can’t beat “Man’s Best Friend” for all of the joy, peace, comfort, chuckles, and entertainment they provide us–or just plain for havin’ around for companionship…! Usually, these pics. come around on “Feel Good Fridays,” but it sure was refreshing to see you post them on a “Manic Monday” instead–thanks for the Welcome Break!!!


  17. - Pius - Monday, Jan 13, 14 @ 7:45 pm:

    My wife says that Jim Riemer’s dogs are half chihuahua and half yorkshire terrier.
