As he approaches his 16th birthday in January, Zeppelin gets a shout out in this Times article on dogs at public events. Councilwoman Burns advanced the idea of dogs not being brought to public events after the mauling last week of a two year old at the Farmer's Market.
The WDT reports I have a dachsund that I have been seen in public with. I will stipulate to that, and I agree with Mrs Burns that dogs are great but sometimes are better off left home.
As for Zeppelin, he prefers a nap to appearing in public.
