Donuts and Dog Park

After Saturdays Bee disaster  we were hoping for a pleasant and relaxing Saturday, and luckily our wish was granted.    After taking the whole family for a nice early morning walk we decided to continue our Manhattan dog park tour by bring Weasley to the dog park at Madison Square on 23rd Street.  

First, we stopped by Doughnut Plant   at the legendary Chelsea Hotel

.  Hang out of incredibly cool like Bob Dylan, Eddie Sedgwick, Allenginsburg and now....Weasley.


 We ate our donuts at the tables in the middle of 6th Avenue, Weasley seemed to enjoys seeing all the big city commotion.

After donuts we headed to the dog park.  I think this was Weasley's best dog park visit yet.  He played hard for over and hour and particularly enjoyed playing with a schnauzer puppy, unfortunately my camera died before the schnauzer arrived.


I love big dogs.

Look how fast I am, I keep up with the big guys

Need for Speed


It was a great day, there is nothing like watching dogs play for reminding one of the joys of life.


On a sadder note our friend Emma at A Wonderful Dog's Life is note feeling her best and her mum is very worried.   Emma is an amazing girl, a 14 year old Great Dane mix and we love her.  Please stop by and offer her some well wishes and her mom some comfort.

  13. Aww, thank you for thinking of us and sending lovely and uplifting comments our way.

    Funny thing we were just watching Doughnut Plant on Travel channel today and talking about how we don't have any good foodie places around here. I like the idea of the square doughnut with the gooey filling in every bite instead of just in the middle. We also learned there isn't anything that can't be deep fried...interesting.

    I think you are one lucky pup to have such cool places within walking distance.

    Emma
