Lady Gaga's Dog Walker

Many of us heard the news that last Wednesday night, in Los Angeles, Lady Gaga's dog walker was shot and two of her French bulldogs--Gustav and Koji--were stolen. Yesterday, CNN reported that the dogs had been returned safely by a woman who said she had found them, and the LAPD is reporting that the dog walker, whose name is Ryan Fischer, is in stable condition, recovering from wounds that were not life-threatening. 

What gives this story a Hudson connection is that on Friday, Page Six reported that Fischer "lists himself on social media as being from Hudson, N.Y.": "Who is Ryan Fischer, Lady Gaga's dog walker targeted in shooting?" 

The photograph below shows Fischer with two of Lady Gaga's dogs, Koji and Asia. Lady Gaga has three French bulldogs: Asia, Gustav, and Koji.

  1. Koji and Gustav had a play date with my dogs, Jasper and Milo several times while Ryan was here in Hudson. He was always very discrete regarding their celebrity status and I only learned about it secondhand through our mutual human friend, Vemilo. Vemilo is an energetic and original young pop performance artist ( ) who did some shows here before the pandemic. He is always a crowd pleaser at Helsinki because his music is so danceable. He also performed at Or and at The Hudson Underground Gallery --- 2 casualities of the pandemic. Vemilo tells me that Ryan is "out of the woods" and able to text but that is all I know right now.
