I was really good on the train and hardly barked at all, even though my stroller was zipped shut. Mom said I was so much better then Tubby who howls like a banshee and thus can't take mass transit. When we got of the train mom and dad took me to a little dog run on Warren Street. I had a great time playing with a super friendly Golden Retriever.
After I played for a while mom and dad decided to head over to a bagel shop, Zucker's.
I waited outside patiently with mom and we met this cute English Bulldog who was waiting for his mom.
I'm not sure how crazy I am about Zucker's the menu was bizarelly devoid of liver (my favorite) and the wait was so long that the first bulldog left and a nw bulldog come and waited before dad came out with the bagels and coffee. (I did get a taste of cream cheese though and it was pretty excellent, plus mom and dad say the bagels are good.)
As we walked down to the park we passed this hanging covering some street construction. It is a little hard to see due to mom's poor photography skills which she blamed on traffic, but its a pug! How auspicious.
The first park we went to is called the Nelson A. Rockefeller Park . It has a section called Penny Park which is filled with sculptures by the artist Tom Otterness. I game them a full inspection.
First I checked out a giant foot.
Then I explored some smaller sculptures on the ground.
I'm not sure how I felt about this last one, it looked like some tiny little guys were torturing some kind of animal!
The sculpture by the water fountain was much more my speed!
I found a cat sculpture too, I have to tell Baby, Scooter, and Ernie about it.
After we checked out the sculptures we went through the flower garden which leads down to the Hudson River Walkway.
From the river walk way you can see New Jersey, but I couldn't see my house or Tubby, Norbert, Ping, and Bob.
On the way back to the train mom and dad bought me by the dog run again.
I played with a sweet little dog named Twiglight, her owner said she was a mix of Australian Shepherd and Dingo!, how exotic. We got along great, it was like a meeting of the Potter and Twilight movie franchises.
I was so tired after my adventure I napped almost all day.
