I took a walk with Dave Brubeck recently, and it was quite an honor. Like any great jazz musician, he improvised quite a bit. He was literally all over the place, and he barked a lot.

Dave is a three-legged, mixed breed with lots of Terrier who loves music – and walks around the neighborhood. He is named after the great musician, Dave Brubeck.


Dave Brubeck, the dog.
