The headline should have read “Nipper Named Top Dog.” After all, Nipper’s photo was the only one to grace the cover of The Times Union’s Best of the Capital Region list, published as a special glossy-cover pull-out section on Thursday (June 18). (For a reason known only to Hearst intimates, the results of the poll won’t be posted online until next week.)

And Nipper was indeed named Best Dog… but only by TU writer Chris Churchill, who added some levity to the newspaper’s readers’ poll picks with his own personal selections. (For Best Free Entertainment, he chose “Troy’s election.”)

Churchill wrote: “I have a great dog. Maybe you have a great dog, too. But Nipper is a great dog – very well behaved – who belongs to all of us.”

Congrats, Nipper!
