A very good dog named Rizzo recently discovered he has a huge fanbase across the street, thanks to a handwritten window sign.
Sara Wolfson, who works with Rizzo, penned a response to the request and posted the story to Twitter.
Long distance love affair
Rizzo is my office doggo, and our client concierge, and a very good boy. He likes to lie in the window sill of his human father’s office, and I’d always wondered if the neighbors could see him. Spoiler alert: they can, and rightfully want to get in on that action. I love him.

Her post was picked up by Dog Rates and quickly went viral.
Hey, @dog_rates – Rizzo is reaching out to strangers and forging bonds. I think that deserves a high rating in these contentious times, right…?

This is Rizzo. His goodness can be identified from across the street three floors down. 14/10 a truly impressive goodness range pic.twitter.com/IduFDefSR5

Sara reported on her efforts in a followup.
We’re making this happen
UPDATE: Coming down the train stairs, there was a woman sitting at her desk so I threw wee pebbles at her window until I got her attention to point out the sign. She was excited and signaled other coworkers to see. WE’RE MAKING THIS HAPPEN.

As of this writing, the neighbors have yet to respond to Rizzo’s overtures, but we will update this breaking story as developments become public.
Rizzo still waiting to meet his new friends
UPDATE: Rizzo is sad because he hasn’t heard from the neighbors. He wore his bandana today so he would be fancy for his new friends, but is laying on the sill, sadly wondering why they have not contacted him. He’s giving his best “when will my husband return from the war?” face. pic.twitter.com/qpEqZrMHN8
