Living in New York: A Canine Perspective

As much as I love sleeping, I love the city that never sleeps more. I’m not allowed to go to certain places, like the zoo, playgrounds, tennis courts, swimming pools or even the beach, but I haven’t even noticed with an endless list of things to doggy do. My perfect New York day is spending the morning at my local ‘dog run’ at Manhattan beach, which is a big fenced in area for me to play with my dog pals. Mum and Dad even let me run here at night because there’s lots of lighting and the plants are all purposely safe for me to eat! Lunch is usually at the Barking Dog Luncheonette on the Third Avenue (with a few sniff stops at my favourite hydrants along the way). I hang in the outdoor café area and enjoy a big drink from the dog bar (fancy name for water trough). All the sun and socialising wears me out so if I’m too tired to walk home Mum calls a pet taxi so I can snooze on the back seat. Ahh New York you are good to me.
