A Well-Named Dog

Yesterday, I was searching the Internet for cute dog pictures (that's what it's for, right?), and I came across this recent post on

Golddragon Booster Gold, posted by Armando Sobrado on

That smile! That hair! That self-possessed grace in front of the camera! Obviously, that dog must be named Booster Gold!

Specifically, it's Golddragon Booster Gold, bred and owned by Mario & Joaquin Martinez-Sanchez of Golddragon Kennel in Spain. (Photo credited to Armando Sobrado.)

I'm a Standard Poodle person by nature, but I cannot deny that hound certainly glitters.

A Star Is Born?

No surprises here: the Labrador Retriever has been America's favorite dog breed for decades.

Last week's poll question: If Booster Gold was a dog, which breed would he be? (37 votes)

If Booster Gold was a dog, which breed would he be?

Jim Brown in The Dirty Dozen. Brett Favre in Something About Mary. Merlin Olsen in Little House on the Prairie. Fran Tarkenton in That's Incredible. All famous athletes making notable screen appearances. How would you expect Booster Gold to follow in their footsteps?

Dog Days of Summer

It has been well established in the past three decades of comic book adventures that Booster Gold is a red-blooded male, always interested in the female form. That history has not been forgotten by his fans.

Last week's poll question: What would be your reaction to Booster Gold coming out of the closet? (39 votes)

What would be your reaction to Booster Gold coming out of the closet?

I was trying to be a little provocative with last week's poll question. Interested in topping that, I asked myself what's more personal than someone's sexual preferences? Their pets!

Booster Gold Is Cuter Than Ever

Booster Gold has a legion of fans around the world seeking to emulate his charming demeanor and winning smile. Traditionally, most of those fans have two legs, but not this one. Meet Booster Gold, the puppy.

Booster Gold at Daily

This weekend, owner shygoofy added this Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier mix puppy named Booster Gold to the list of puppies cataloged by The Daily Puppy, a website devoted to showcasing man's best friends. Nicknamed "BooBoo," this puppy is just four months old. If this puppy stays this cute as he grows up, our hero Booster Gold may find some competition for the ladies from this babe hound.

Benefits of Pet Ownership

Americans love dogs. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs are the most popular pet in America. More households have dogs than cats. (However, there are more cats in American households than dogs, proving that "Crazy Cat Lady" isn't a stereotype, it's a statistical fact.)

It's no coincidence that in DC comics books, the big name heroes have dogs. Both Batman and Superman have dogs. Meanwhile, the women, like Supergirl and Powergirl, have cats. It is pretty clear that if Booster Gold is to step up into the big leagues, he'll need to trade in Jack and Jill (his pair of house cats) for some sort of dog.

What sort of dog best suits Booster Gold? A flashy German Shepherd? An energetic Jack Russell? A powerful Great Dane? The ever-popular mutt? Whatever the case, get to your local animal shelter, Booster! Your enduring popularity depends on it!
