Off Main Street: This Bills fan has been dogging it for years

Allan Monaco is a big Bills fan, and it's no surprise that's rubbed off on his golden retriever, Jake.

Jake is trained as a therapy dog and Monaco takes him to various locations, including the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, which The News wrote about this month.

Buffalo Airport has gone to the dogs, and people are thrilled

When they're home, however, Jake helps Monaco. He said when he watches a Bills game and he starts to get agitated and screams at the TV, Jake senses his distress and comes over to jump on his lap.

When they're out on assignment, Monaco dresses Jake in a Bills jersey and uses a Bills leash if a big game is approaching.

Monaco also keeps an eye out for Bills players, coaches and staffers at the airport. He said he recently ran into Russ Brandon.

Monaco said he told the Bills president, "He's the best wide retriever you have."
