Despite the popularity of Ernie the Flying Dog, Romo from Adams Morgan is the most photographed dog to appear on the site. I was very upset to read the following post from the forum:

Adams Morgan Dog Romo Dead?

Hey guys! I live in Adams Morgan and love seeing the big white dog, whose name is apparently Romo, hanging out his window on Calvert people watching in the summertime. I haven’t seen him recently, though, and noticed his owners put a plaque outside their window that says his name, Romo. I wonder if he passed away? That would be terribly sad!

Upon investigation I am happy to report Romo is alive and well! I stopped by yesterday and could see him looking out the window:


He just got a nice new name plate. So now when you walk by Calvert Street and see a big dog relaxing by/out the window – you can say – what’s up Romo?
