My new buddy CHRIS ISAAK!!

Greetings from Boston (again) as I attend the Oncology Nursing Society convention: 10,000 big-haired women (and about 3 men) talking about cancer. What a hen party! But that's not the big story...As I waited to board the shuttle at LaGuardia, a familiar face sat near me…award-winning crooner and actor CHRIS ISAAK! He was with a lady friend, his little dog (Rodney), and some random dude who appeared to be his assistant or agent or something.

In any event, they let Rodney out of his carrier and the dog was running around the terminal (I overheard Chris say he was trying to tire him out before the flight, the same technique my sister uses on her children…). Rodney had a little “I♥NY” teddy bear in his mouth. He was tossing it and shaking it and “attacking” it in typical dog fashion. At one point Chris’ friend said to him, “He really loves that thing. I didn’t even see you buy it in the gift shop.” Whereupon Chris replied, “Um, I didn’t buy it…I thought you did!” Yes, apparently the cute-but-felonious canine had helped himself to a new toy!

For the record, upon this realization, Chris went to the gift shop to offer to pay for it. He was clearly a very nice and down-to-earth guy. That’s why—at baggage claim in Boston—I felt comfortable enough to go over, say hi, and take the picture above.

He was also entertained by my camera’s meow/woof sound effects. you can CLICK HERE for a picture (not mine) of Chris with Rodney.


  • Did he sing to you? Did you sing to him? Did he pinch your butt? So many unanswered questions...
