Bogey Quilty-Winge, a 1-year-old Cavapoo from Northeast Minneapolis, is the first-ever winner of Minnesota Monthly’s Petfest!
Get to Know Bogey:
Nicknames: The Bogey Monster,” “Bog-Meister,” and George (as in, Curious George, because he’s curious by nature.)
Words that describe Bogey: Lovable, outgoing, and clumsy—largely in part of his tendency to run into things, fall off furniture, sit on Mom’s head, and succumb to a full-body wobble when he gets too excited.
Favorite things: He loves “ice cookies,” which are really just ice cubes, and Piper, an animated short film about a baby bird.
Favorite places: Outdoor patios, walks across the Stone Arch Bridge, afternoons at In The Loop Coffee Co. (a dog-friendly coffee shop in North Loop that serves up homemade dog treats.)
Silliest quirk: “Bogey used to know how to roll over, but now he’s decided he doesn’t like to do that,” Caitlyn Quilty, one of Bogey’s owners, says. “Instead, he just walks in a circle.”
