Capitol Hill Pets | Earl Cheddar Biscuit, the Pac-Man frog of Boren

Dylan Cole, best known for his work as a comic and pizza dude, invited CHS inside his apartment at Boren and Pike to meet his familiar — Earl Cheddar Biscuit, the Pac-Man frog. In an apartment that’s even warmer than Seattle’s unseasonably nice weather, Earl sits under a hand drawn sign, an original from his stint at the pound. Earl is a Seattle rescue but his ancestors hail from the jungles of South America. According to Dylan, Earl is a variety known as an Albino Ornate or CranWelli and his species has been around since long before us, with his ancestors eating small dinosaurs. With a lifespan of 15 years, Pac-Man frogs like Earl Cheddar Biscuit require special attention, but with a human companion like Dylan, he will be well taken care of.

We ask photographer Alex Garland to follow marchers in the rain and do crazy things like trying to make yet another picture of yet another huge apartment building look interesting. We thought we’d ask him to do something a little more fun. Capitol Hill Pets is a semi-regular look at our furry, fuzzy, feathered, and finned friends found out and about on Capitol Hill.
