BurgerTop Dogs is a segment where we feature a Q&A session with a famous canine.

Who better to kick off our Top Dog series than with Burger from the Young House Love blog (view their book on Amazon: Young House Love). Burger was kind enough to take precious time away from hiding under the covers and roaming around his parent’s Sherry and Jon’s home improvements to share some insight into what it’s like being a top dog in Richmond, Virginia. It’s a tough job but someone’s gotta be man’s (and woman’s) best friend. Now let’s get to know Burger better, shall we?

1. What’s your favorite treat?

Peanut butter is heaven in a spoon. (We couldn’t agree more Burger!)  

2. Where are your favorite hang out?

I love to go bug hunting outside. You should see it. It’s impressive.

3. What’s your best trick?

I’m really good at the “leave it” command. So my mom or dad can hold a glistening piece of bacon right in front of my nose and say “leave it” and I won’t so much as look at it, but I’ll scarf it down the second they say “take it.”

4. How old are you? (in people years)

I’m 6. (Really? You don’t look a day over 5!) 

5. If you could be anyone for a day who would it be?

A human, so I could open the pantry and the refrigerator myself.

6. Who do you like best? (Sherry, John or Clara?)

Clara! She always has something sticky and delicious on her hands – I’m partial to jelly.

7. How do you feel about cats?

Ironically I loathe them less than most dogs. I know, I’m a disgrace to dogs everywhere.

8. What’s your favorite fellow celebrity dog?

I have always looked up to the Taco Bell dog. He paved the way for feisty tan chihuahuas like myself.

9. Do you have any nicknames?

I probably have a million: The Burgs, Burgsie, Burgmeister, Burg-dorf Goodman, Burgercita, the list goes on…

10. And just for fun….What’s your favorite home improvement project to date?

I hate the noisy ones, but painting’s fine with me.

Thanks Burger!

Thanks for throwing us a bone, Burger. Want to get to know him more and read more  fun in the life of Burger and his family? Check out his cute little face gracing the cover and pages of their new book, in a bookstore (or virtual bookstore) near you!

About The Author:

Sadie graduated from the Moody School of Communications at the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors in Advertising and minor in Business. Her love of pets started from an early age with her childhood cocker spaniel, Peanut, and two cats. She is currently dog mom to Lexie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

As a professional dog sitter for more than a decade, Sadie has cared for dozens of canines of various breeds, sizes and temperaments. The responsibility of caring for others' pets has helped her understand the importance of giving animals a loving home. She has experience potty and house training as well as teaching dogs tricks such as sit and shake. Sadie is passionate about canine well-being so she feeds her pup all-natural meals and no table scraps.

Sadie and her husband live in Washington DC and enjoy walking Lexie to nearby dog parks or patios and taking her canine companion on trips. Having an adventurous, long-haired Blenheim means frequent baths and home grooming to maintain a clean coat. A small dog also requires more frequent dental care and Sadie is proactive with Lexie's oral hygiene.

She has been covering dog-related topics since 2012 and is proud to share her latest personal experience, resources and information with fellow pet parents. Her expertise has appeared in many notable media outlets, including The New York Times' Wirecutter, Forbes, People, Reader's Digest, Apartment Therapy, and other regional news organizations.
