A hearty welcome back to Bingo Chabner: ChabDog of the Month for January 2017

Let’s all give Bingo Chabner a hand … no perhaps a hand-out … for the always hungry dog’s second appearance as ChabDog of the Month,… this time for January 2017.  Bingo is pictured engaging in one of his favorite activities, … perched on a chair, reflecting on a recent feeding and craving more.  How can such a little dog have such a big tongue.  Our little bear/rabbit spends his day plotting his next food conquest, like Tom Brady sizes up a defense for TDs, and is an expert in his profession.  Hats off to Bingo ChabDog of the Month Chabner.

Welcome the new ChabDog of the Month — “Big Boy” the hunk of Husky


Welcome “Big Boy” — the hunk of Husky who is the new ChabDog of the Month, for December 2016.

This is one of the most beautiful, statuesque doggies I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, and he should be the official mascot for the No. 4 Washington Huskies.

Maybe this guy will bring them good luck in the upcoming BCS battles.  Truly a wonderful canine specimen.

11-3-16-underdog 11-3-16-underdog2

“Have no fear, Underdog is here.”  Yes, this November, ChabDog Sports Blog celebrates Underdog.  How appropriate that on November 2, the ultimate underdog, ….the much maligned and lambasted Chicago Cubs, came through against all odds to win the World Series.  This tells us that everyone has a chance to beat the odds, and reminds those who gloat about goats to be careful they don’t trip over their own tongues.  You go, Underdog!  Straight to the top!

Say hello to ChabDog of the Month for October 2016 — Smokey X


ChabDog is pleased to celebrate the Bluetick Coonhound “Smokey X” as ChabDog of the Month for October 2016.  Smokey X follows a long line of canine mascots for the University of Tennessee, and he is currently basking in the glory of UT’s thrilling, come-from-behind victory over UGA and its white bulldog, Uga.

A bit of history — Smokey X made his debut in 2014 and leads the Vols on the field for football games. During the week, he lives with the Hudson family, but on weekends involving home games, he typically shacks up on campus in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house, where he thoroughly enjoys participating in toga parties. He is the first Smokey not descended from the original Smokey bloodline, but is the first from a new Tennessee-born and bred bloodline.

Let ChabDogs of the Month Diablo and Angel come to your emotional rescue in September …

September is a big month in a lot of ways … US Open, College Football, Pro Football and pennant races in full swing. But it’s also a huge month at ChabDog, as we welcome the Saint Bernards Diablo and Angel as ChabDogs of the Month.

These cuddly giants are brother and sister, and the cherished companions of owners Patricia and Aaron.  We were also surprised to learn that they willing take orders from their diminutive roommate and elder statesman, a cuter than cute 10-yr old Maltese mix, who “rules the roost”.

In Patricia’s words — “Angel is our girl, she is 6 years old and weights 140. She is friendly, spunky and loves to get up on our laps!!! She can get lost in the yard, play in the trees and chase squirrels for hours.”

—   “Diablo is our boy. He is 5 years old, and weighs 170. He is more of a watchdog and can be intimidating. Once he likes someone, they are welcome in the house and he treats them like a family member. He likes to lay around, lounge, and sunbathe. He can find hiding spots in the house and challenges us to find him!!!”

Angel and Diablo — thanks for being our ChabDogs of the Month for September 2016!

7-31-16 little doobie8-1-16 scooby-doo

As we enter the dog days of August, who better to usher in the festivities than the adorable pup, “Doobie”.

As confirmed by proud owner Ben Sarinana, Doobie is a 2 month old boxer/lab mix, who loves spending his time playing fetch and tug of war.

Of course, he also dreams incessantly about eating his steak and bacon snacks, just like his predecessor-in-interest, “Scooby-Doo”.

Yes, indeed, Doobie’s looking cool as we work out way into the meat of the Summer, and he doesn’t even need to work on his tan…

Thanks for being ChabDog of the Month for August 2016, Doobie!

Let’s hear it for Eli — ChabDog of the Month for June 2016

6-2-16 eli

6-2-16 eli reads

6-2-16 am cocker gothic

In the fall of 2004, Eli Mordechai Chabner, the noblest dog the world has ever known, passed away on the floor of my mom’s vet in Newton Centre, MA, saving her the pain of having to put him down for the count.  It was only fitting that this lovely creature, who lived to love and please, would spare us the torture of having to end his life.  Eli was born 13 years earlier, in early June of 1991, somewhere on Love Street, and delivered to my parents as an almost impossible replacement for the first cocker in the Chabner lineage, Howie.  Never would there be a kinder, more tender or more handsome man’s best friend than Eli.  Sometimes called JP Licks, he would hit your face with his tongue till the cows came home, and loved to snuggle and dote on his baby sister Lily.  And his calming eyes were a therapeutic panacea for any troubled soul.  Somewhere in heaven, Eli, is lying at the beach, with his sunglasses on, reading of bullfighting in California, and doing what he did best, calming the world down to a relaxing Sunday afternoon nap.  Rest in peace Eli.

Meet Young Cal! ChabDog of the Month for April 2016

4-4-16 Cal 1


It’s appropriate that with the start of the new season in Major League Baseball, we announce Cal, the Labradoodle with oodles of energy, as ChabDog of the Month for April 2016.  Cal’s owner, Mason, told me this playful, happy 9-month old youngster was named after Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr.

Indeed, Cal is a 40 pound bundle of intense activity, always investigating his surroundings and making new friends.

Mason lovingly comments that Cal has never meet a “stranger”, and the dog is particularly fond of “anything that squeaks. Perhaps Cal will bring the Orioles good luck this year … they’ll need it.

Again, let’s welcome Cal as ChabDog of the Month for April 2016!

ChabDog of the Month for March 2016 — Bingo Chabner

On his 9th birthday, Bingo Chabner returns as ChabDog of the Month for March 2016.

Let’s give the still youthful Yorkie-Poo his due, as one of the most lovable, infectiously cute four legged friends you’ll ever meet.  After one of his famous walks, in which he indulged the supercomputer that is his little black nose, he is pictured here dreaming of either spare rib bones, doggie dental chews or his long suffering companion Easter Bunny.

Don’t miss it on Saturday, March 5 at 10:00 am pst, when Bingo moves from the pavement of Manhattan Beach to San Bernadino, where he is part of the last show for ChabDog Sports Talk on KCAA, AM 1050 and FM 106.5 (we are moving to Blog Talk Radio (ChabDog Radio channel)),

Meet Pedro: ChabDog of the Month, February 2016

Pedro: ChabDog of the Month for February 2016

Say hello to Pedro, ChabDog of the Month for February 2016.  Pedro is the loveable, 12-year old dachshund of super Pats fan Mark Caruso, a frequent contributor ChabDog Sports Talk.  At ChabDog, we’re surprised Pedro hasn’t been dubbed honorary “Pats’ Pet”, as he watches every game with his devoted owner, while munching on his squeaky toys.  We haven’t asked Mark about the derivation of this name, but ChabDog suspects it can be attributed to Pedro’s penchant for owning his immediate territory with his high intensity stare and all-encompassing, dominating personality… just like, as Mark is known to chime from time to time, Pedro Martinez owns the Yankees.  Pedro also is great around children (particularly babies), following them incessantly around the house, and is also good for an occasional tease of the “pizza guy” and other unsuspecting visitors, who hear his huge bark and expect to see a German shepherd.

Pedro, don’t ever change, and by all means keep your Patriots’ gear ready for next year!
