Six pounds, “but he thinks he’s the king of Rose Park. He’s a big dog trapped in a small body.”

DISTINGUISHING FEATURE
His “blaze,” the white strip between his eyes.

FAVORITE FOOD
Liver pâté from Stachowski’s. Responds to name of the store. (“He wants to say Jamie is a genius.”)

Skippy, who lives with Tom Birch and Sidney Lawrence on 29th Street. “They’re the same size.”

THOUGHTS ON ROSE PARK
“It’s the perfect place. His first birthday party was right here at this picnic table.”

GOOD TRAVELER
“Jumps right into his carrier.” He shuttles between Georgetown and Hobe Sounds in Florida. “He loves Yappy Hour at the golf course there.”
