He’s also the first artist to donate a work for the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society’s Art Saves Animals auction fundraiser this September 30.

Chuck Miller managed to get permission to get on the roof of the Arnoff Moving and Storage building and shoot a polar panorama of Nipper. It’s a great story and we are so jealous.

It’s a wierd, Beantown kinda day here in Nippertown. We’ve got a CD review for the cruisin-for-a-lawsuit Boston Celtics. We’ve got a Neighborhoods preview.

And we’ve got a mention of Chuck Miller’s blog post about the history of Albany’s Nipper. Different guy, but Chuck Miller is also the name of the Neighborhoods longtime live sound mixing wizard. Coincidence? Oh, I don’t think so.

So if you don’t already know the tale of Nipper, you can find out most everything that you’d like to know right here. You can also see some lovely photos of our Nipper, too.

And thanks for the shout-out, Chuck. We appreciate it.
