The Sleepy Foodie-Or Weasley's Second Trip to Manhattan

On Saturday Weasley had to get his fourth round of puppy shots.  The vet warned us that he would be sleep and that we should keep an eye on him in the unlikely event there was a reaction.  Since it was our anniversary we had decided to go into Manhattan to eat something yummy and we decided to bring Weasley with us in his travel pouch (good socialization opportunity).  Weasley slept through the whole adventure

He slept outside Luke's Lobster Bar where we got Lobster Rolls

 and he slept at Tompkins Square Park where we sat on a bench and ate our lobster rolls and drinking Maine Blueberry Soda.

He perked up and barked when we gave him a look at the Tompkins Square Park Dog Run .

"I'll be back when I'm bigger!"

He slept outside the Howl Festival, which looked awesome Bouncy Castles for Kids and all to celebrate Allen Ginsberg.  I don't know about you but when I hear the poem Howl I definitely think of bouncy castles.  Weasley did perk up a bit as we walked past the Howl Festival art displays but even in his half awake state he didn't see any Angel Headed Hipsters (poem reference).

 Weasley snoozed outside the People's Pops stand where mom got a Rhubarb Jasmine Popsickle

 and he was half asleep while Dad at his ice cream Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

 Weasley's cuteness attracted some admirers who perked him up.

 On the way to the train we passed a genuine Weasley dopelganger outside of a building

 Truly Weasley belongs in the West Village.

(Note: Weasley woke right up when we got home!)


  1. WOW!! What a great trip! We are soo glad there were no reactions and Weasley was able to go play with you guys all day! The food just looks too delish! Happy Monday! :0)

  2. I just got back from the big ocean, and I ran over to see adorable Weasley!
    Oh owie shots! But I can see mom and dad helped Weasley feel better and, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to mom and dad!
    It was so nice of you to take baby boy along!

  4. Of course! What an adventure!! Lots of good eats too. Happy anniversary!

  5. Happy Anniversary, mom and dad. So nice of you to take baby Weasley along. He is just so adorable!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie, Mack and foster Mario

  6. Mom said you made her hungry with your post. She said she is going to NY as soon as time allows!

  7. How great of you to spend your Anniversary keeping an eye on your baby! He has already had some great adventures for a young guy!

  8. Awww cute Weasley!! He looks really sleepy after the shots. I love the photo of him with his dopelganger :-)
    It's so funny he woke right up when he got home. LOL!

  9. How could he not attract admirers? What a face.

  10. Taking your puppy out like that you must have had a gazzilion people who wanted to pet Wesley's adorable head. And he slumbered away.....

    When we were in Florence, Italy this past Sept. we saw these unique popsicle shops and wondered why no one has put in one our area. There you are at one and oh that flavor sounds tasty and refreshing!

    Happy Anniversary to you both too!

  11. Poor Weasly - so young and naive. Little dude, you should NEVER succumb to sleepiness when there is potential for human vittles. I mean, while you were getting your forty winks, you missed out on samples of lobster, popsicles, and ice cream (which all of us pugs DESERVE). Next time you go in to Manhattan, Weasley, DEMAND a pastrami sandwich! :)


  12. Hey Urban Hounds, Jet here.

    Ok, the trifecta: NY, urban hounds and good food... c'mon!

  13. First of all, Happy Belated Anniversary!!!
    Looks like you had a very nice day!
    Weasley is so adorable :)
    p.s. Thank you for your May discount - my current post has a tank that mom bought me, using your discount :)
    Thanks again!

  14. What cute pictures of a very sleep little puggie!
