Big guys seem to own small dogs these days. Why?

Zoltan & Mateo. I scribbled the names down in my notebook and I’ll be honest. I can’t remember which is which but they’re both cute so who cares. ‘I’m straight by the way’ Zoltan – or Mateo – told me. ‘The deal was if I got a bike, she got... Continue reading

And then there was Nick and his cute little Bolognese dog Ivy. I accosted these gorgeous creatures on the not so mean streets of Chicago. ‘Every time I see a puppy I want to lay down on the floor and cry with happiness' Nick told me. I totally know how... Continue reading

Big Guy Small Dog Blog feels the need to acknowledge The Source, the inspiration if you like, for its existence. I began this blog when I spied a Lemmy look-a-like in Camden: leather-clad, grizzled, a bloke – with a petite frou frou dog on a lead. Big Guy Small Dog... Continue reading

Big Guy Small Dog Blog stepped out of its comfort zone recently and took an interesting stroll in the ‘burbs. From Orpington to Chislehurst. Back in the day, ‘Orpington Man’ was a term used by marketers to (condescendingly) describe a middle-of-the-road sector of society. No more! Today’s Orpington Man is... Continue reading

I pounced on Hunter and his glorious bearded owner at the Fun Dog Show in Primrose Hill recently. True to Chihuahua form, Hunter is a legend at his local pub in Shoreditch where (other probably bearded) people back up against the wall when he arrives. Why? Because Hunter recently wiped...

So there I am, let loose on the streets of NYC when an apparition appears before me: Jeff and his tiny Chihuahua Kiki. In a case of mistaken identity, Kiki was once chased out of a shop by a Bodega Cat. What is a Bodega Cat? It is a feline... Continue reading

Big Guy Small Dog Blog was back on familiar territory last week and it didn’t take long to hit the jackpot. It turns out today’s dog had hit a few jackpots of his own recently. Young Colman has a penchant for bigger dogs and recently attempted ‘relations’ with a noodle*.... Continue reading

Whilst out carousing, Big Guy Small Dog Blog encountered Cooper, a cheeky Italian Greyhound. ‘I’ve never seen so many boobs’ said one of his two owners, ‘as ladies lean over to say hello’. He then revealed what I’ve long suspected. Straight guys borrow Cooper to try and pull. Pimps. Continue reading

Look at this gorgeous duo I found walking in one of my most lucrative small dog/big guy hunting grounds. Petal’s owner made me laugh when he said he loved the dog more than his daughter. He meant that he loves the dog more than his daughter loves the dog but... Continue reading

Remember how you used to watch Sharon and Ozzy Osborne snogging their tiny dogs on that TV show and feel like barfing? In a first for Big Guy Small Dog Blog – and I say this as a fully paid up ‘cat person’ – I would have full on let... Continue reading

It was like a scene from Lord of the Flies when photographer Walter Briski Jr and I entered the Chelsea Dog Park with Walter’s epic Newfoundland dogs. Whilst the enormous shapes of Pookie and Autumn sat looking passively on, the smallest dogs in the park gathered atop a rock and... Continue reading

In a first for Big Guy Small Dog Blog, I publish not one, but two pictures of the same man-dog combo. This is Martin and his Chihuahua Rico, two-time winner of the Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade. When Martin and his girlfriend broke up, he got Rico and she... Continue reading

So far, New York has far surpassed my expectations, not least in the big guy small dog/man quotient. Today’s picture takes the piss (in the best possible way). Not one, but three little dogs did I find attached to one very charming man. Fifi, Coco and Ginger are Tea-cup poodles.... Continue reading

'You won’t be able to spit in New York for big guys with small dogs' they said. Turns out they were telling the truth. Today (amongst others) I encountered the very English sounding Reggie with his two little dogs, Rania and Milo. Semi cheat: they are Reggie’s girlfriend’s dogs but... Continue reading

So there I was, poking around the halls and chambers of London's legal district with my brother (non dog lover) one afternoon and what do we find lurking amongst the temples? Tiny Missy and her tall owner, that’s what. What prompted their ‘union’ I wanted to know. The answer was... Continue reading

Im having a non-purist day. The dog belongs to this guy’s girlfriend. But he likes walking it so much that I made an exception. I think you can see why. How could I resist the combination of this charming little (female) Jack Russell, perched like a meercat atop her owner’s... Continue reading

What are the chances that you’re with a film crew trying to illustrate the point that big guys with small dogs are everywhere and you actually run into one? We spotted Suki first, waiting patiently outside the local teahouse. Moment’s later; we extracted her owner Frank. As the cameras rolled,... Continue reading

It’s been a while since I updated my blog. What can I stay? The standard of Big Guys with Small Dogs took a temporary dip. Until I arrived in Milan that is; a world where even the security guard at Hotel Nhow was working ‘a look’. No sooner had I... Continue reading
