welcome back abe!


Now that Kelly is back from Texas, Abe is too! Much blonder than before, but still adorable as ever. It must be all that Texas sun and BBQ. Great picnic this weekend with the pups. Abe + Kali = new BFFs.

Look at this cute face.  Central Park dog sitings are the best.

monster dog


Saw this at the pet store while getting a toy for Kali. For $30….

meet kali!






Just met Connie and Tony’s new puppy yesterday! She’s probably the epitome of cuteness. Breed: Lowland Polish Sheepdog. Loves: Napping under the table, playing with her toys (especially the green and pink “cuz” that I got her…hehe), and just being cute like a stuffed animal at her young age.

I’m free to doggie-sit whenever! Hint hint… 😉

park view: big spotted dog


Stumbled upon this pic recently.  It was a Union Square Farmer’s market find.  I don’t know my dogs well, but it is best described as a Great Dane Dalmation mix.  It was beautiful and one of the biggest dogs I’ve ever seen.  A great animal!  If I could have only gotten his face in the pic.  Where does someone keep a dog this big in the city??

snowmen, snow, & dogs of central park

Didn’t get around to making snowmen yesterday at Central Park, but here’s some from people who did.  I especially like the first one that looks like it has a paper sailor hat and hearts for hands.  I guess it’s in honor of Valentine’s Day…lol.

Loved this white dog that was out there.  It was having lots of fun in the snow.

Action shot.  A game of chase.

A view of the half domed stage in the distance

Sheep’s Meadow looks a little different in the winter without all the sunbathers and picnic people hanging out.

mini project: roger [dog] sweater

My first crochet project looks like a success!  Decided to teach myself how to crochet so I gave myself a little project–a doggie sweater for Roger, Kristin’s dog.  Mostly it was inspired by the fact that the picture of the finished product with the pattern was a boston terrier so it was most appropriate for Roger to be my muse…haha.  I always thought it was slightly strange for pets to wear clothes (dresses specifically), but seeing how cold and wet it is in NYC at times, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to give them a little protection from the elements (wet dog smell is not fun). 

Found the pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn website.  I usually buy their yarn (used for this sweater too) because it’s really affordable and there are lots of colors.  They have TONS of free patterns online for knitting and crochet and they also have a learn to knit/crochet instructions if you want to teach yourself.  I learned the basics from my grandma when I was younger, but this site is really helpful for beginners with no experience or for people who need a little refreshers because they forgot something.

Hopefully Rog enjoys his new sweater and that he’s toasty warm!  Thanks Rog for being such a great model!  And thanks Kristin for humoring my first attempt at a crochet project and promising to have Rog try it on no matter what it looked like–even if it had 3 arm holes.  But Thankfully it had 2 arm holes and fit Roger pretty perfectly!!  Yay…success!  (more pics below of the fitting/modeling session….)

Front view…

Running towards the owner for a treat to keep the model happy…

There’s a perfect “sit”

From the Blooper Reel:  The arms have not quite made it into the armholes so it kinda just looks like a shawl.  I let Kristin handle the getting on of the sweater…haha…she’s a little more experience with getting him into doggie clothing.

It was a good day for Roger of doing tricks for popcorn and playing catch. Who can resist that face?? Always a fun day when he comes.

a day in the sun…

It was a beautiful sunny day today.  Awesome start to Memorial Day weekend and I definitely took advantage of it by spending it outside.

shake shack UWS

After the gym this morning I headed up a few blocks to the Shake Shack in the Upper West Side (above).  Yea I know…gym plus shackburger doesn’t quite add up to healthy, but it sounded sooo good..haha.

Museum of Natural History

Took my shake shack to go and walked towards one of my favorite museums–The Museum of Natural History (above)–across from Central Park.

Natural History Museum Steps

Lunch on the steps of the Museum and people watching (above).  Yay for Rainbow sandals weather!

central park row boats

Central Park rowboat riders (above) enjoying the day and listening to a performer who’s on the grass behind me.


Lots of people out in Sheep Meadow (above) in Central Park.  Awesome.

The spot I picked to settled down in (above).  Lied down on the grass to get some studying done and work on the tan.

my favorite nyc dogs…

I don’t have any pets of my own, but I would love to have some.  In the mean time, I’m having a lot of fun playing with with my friends dogs.  Meet Abe and Roger. 🙂
