Topper hasn't swallowed any major items in his second year and we are very thankful, although they miss him at the Animal Medical Center. In his early life, he was devoted to eating nonfood, but now his tastes have matured some.
I had first photographed him as a young young puppy in June, 2012. He was sweet and very photogenic and best of all, Flo adored him.
Brian and Beth Meany, his breeders, said yes and a plan was set to pick him up at Bowdoin College, where my exhibition Hello Nature would be opening. On May 14, 2012, when he was 8 weeks old, we did.. I had lots of social hubbub, to deal with so Topper was passed around to gaggles of students and dog friendly visitors and assigned helpers. It was a great beginning for the Top…he loves students and people of all ages.
"My love of Renaissance music began out of necessity. During the 1980s, I lived in New York's East Village, about a block from the Pyramid Club. Most nights, the club's thumping music invaded my apartment and drove me crazy. Only recordings with a cello or viol—an early-music stringed instrument—could mask it."
