Happy National Dog Day!

Nellie, a two-year-old mini Goldendoodle, won this year’s Dogs of Radiology contest and was crowned 2017 Top Dog. She swept the competition with a silly photo of her resting her head next to a glass of wine after what must have been an exhausting and full day. So funny!

Her human, Laura Dickman, is a clinical manager in Interventional Radiology. Nellie was named after the rapper Nelly, but hasn’t quite mastered her own rapping. This vivacious pup loves playing with the kids and giving lots of love to her family.

Congratulations, Nellie! And Happy National Dog Day!
