Boise loves dogs and we have proof. We asked Boiseans, City Casters, and friends to share photos of their very good dogs with us. These are their mugs.
Say hello to Winnie! She’s a chihuahua dachshund mix. When Winnie isn’t helping Idaho Capital Sun reporter Mia Maldonado cover the news, she’s exploring the outdoors. Good luck trying to keep up with Winnie — she’s a speedy girl! (Mia Maldonado)
Say hello to Dodger! He’s an adventurous golden retriever. Dodger is happiest when he’s in the water with his mom Rosie. He uses his life jacket to go paddle boarding and swimming in Idaho’s outdoors. Did someone say granola boy summer? (Rosie Piper)
Say hello to Lucy! She’s a sassy 15-year-old pug. Do we have any “Golden Girls” fans? Lucy’s mom Shelly describes her as a true Dorothy who can spend an entire walk sniffing everything in front of her. (Shelly Volsche)
Say hello to Ruby! She’s a young golden retriever, who makes Boise State Public Radio’s Jimmy Dawson’s life a lot more interesting. Ruby loves a good spa day at the dog park, even in the winter months! Mud bath, anyone? (Jimmy Dawson)
Meet Chip! He’s the famous 19-year-old dachshund mix who likes to interrupt our City Cast Boise host Emma Arnold during her recordings. This wise old man loves going to Dog Island in Ann Morrison Park and riding as passenger prince in his mom’s convertible. (Emma Arnold)
Say hello to Lily, she’s a lab border collie mix! Originally from Portland, Lily now takes pride in being a Boise resident. She loves all things Boise, especially running the trails and swimming at Ann Morrison’s Dog Island. (Sydney Boutros)
Say hello to Bailey and Finn, they’re both King Charles cavalier spaniels. These adventurous and friendly buddies love kayaking and going on morning walks. But on a hot summer day, you can find them chilling indoors. BFF goals! (Janette DeLap)
Say hello to Xena, she’s a 5-year-old Australian shepherd! Xena stays busy competing with the Boise FlyDogs, the only flyball team in the state. (Aimee Shipman)
Say hello to Finn and Milo, they’re both Brussels griffons! Catch them riding through Downtown Boise in style. Finn and Milo enjoy checking out our Boise breweries, greenbelt and trails. (Ennae Fairchild)
Say hello to Julio the Peekapoo! He loves laying in his front yard and meeting new friends as they walk by. Julio also enjoys spending time on Hyde Park Pub’s dog friendly patio and when his sweet tooth kicks in he can always rely on a Starbucks pup cup. (Heather Pascua)
Say hello to Ella, she’s a 3-year-old golden retriever. She loves going for walks on the Greenbelt and jumping into any body of water whenever she gets the chance! (Carrie Riddick)
Say hello to Shiloh, he’s a six-year-old Rat Terrier! He loves exploring Boise’s parks with his favorite human Vicki Graham! Shiloh is also an emotional support K-9. (Vicki Graham)
Say hello to Lucy and Baxter. Lucy is a 17-month-old bernedoodle who enjoys road trips and is always the first to run out the door. Baxter is an 8-year-old chihuahua pug mix who was rescued from the Idaho Humane Society. He enjoys spending time at Ann Morrison’s Dog Island and Morris Hill Dog park. This pack loves a good adventure, their latest was attending the Old Time Fiddlers Festival. (Tom Legerski)
