Madison, Finn, & Fritz, Miniature Dalmatians & Swedish Vallhund (1 & 2 y/o & 9 m/o), 25th & Broadway, New York, NY β€’ "They're three of the rarest dogs in town. Walking them is a real pain – everyone wants to know what they are."


Scout, Australian Shepherd (14 y/o), Broome & Wooster St., New York, NY β€’ "There's nothing interesting about my dog – she's perfect. She's very bright and is great company. We miss her presence when she's not there."


Archie, Chihuahua (2 y/o), Spring & Lafayette St., New York, NY β€’ "He's a strange boy from Puerto Rico. He destroys the carpet – there are three big chunks missing." @archiestephenson


George, French Bulldog (2 y/o), Broome & West Broadway, New York, NY β€’ "He's just a dog."


Iko, Siberian Husky mix (3 y/o), Madison Square Park, New York, NY β€’ "If it's on the table, he'll eat it. He ate a whole pie last week."



Bernese Mountain Dog (6 w/o), Oley, PA β€’ A sneak preview from my next book, coming this Fall: The Dogist Puppies β€’ Happy National Puppy Day!


Gracie, Labrador Retriever ("10-20" y/o), Nasdaq Opening Bell Ceremony, New York, NY β€’ "She's between 10-20 years old. She's a tripawd – we think she lost her leg in an animal trap down in Texas." @amsterdogrescue @nasdaq


Gordon & Hank, Pit Bull & Labrador Retriever (7 & 4 y/o), Nasdaq Opening Bell Ceremony, New York, NY β€’ "Hank is Gordon's therapy dog." @amsterdogrescue @nasdaq


Biggie, English Bulldog (2 y/o), Prince & Mulberry St., New York, NY β€’ "We both love snacks and napping – we have similar interests. I've been walking him for six months now. I grew up in Minnesota and always had a dog in the family. When I moved to New York I lived in a shoe box and couldn't have my own dog, so being a walker has been amazing. He's very stubborn – if you want to go one way he'll always want to go another way."


Chico, Dachshund/Yorkshire Terrier mix (1 y/o), Broome & West Broadway, New York, NY β€’ "He's like a grumpy old man – when he doesn't know you he's like, 'Ahhhh, don't touch me!', but he likes females. With females, he's with it."


Bernice, Sheepadoodle (3 y/o), Bleecker & Morton St., New York, NY β€’ "She loves sitting in the window and watching the world go by."



Storm, Doberman Pinscher (3 y/o), 7th & Grove St., New York, NY β€’ "He's a rescue – I've had him for a year. He was people and dog aggressive when I got him – I had to send him to intensive behavior training, but he's great now. He's a goofball."


Franklin, Retriever mix (12 w/o), East Village, New York, NY β€’ "He's my fifth foster dog. He spent his entire life so far in a shelter in South Carolina – within the last 24-hours he was transported up here and separated from his littermates, so he's a little confused. It's like having a part-time baby. You have the dog for the hardest but cutest phase of life and when it gets adopted it's equally sad and a relief. I can unroll my rugs and be a normal person again. Anyone who wants to get a dog should foster first. You can be a puppy parent for five days and test the waters." @unleashednyorg


Layla & Bella, Cane Corsi (3 & 2 y/o), Spring & Broadway, New York, NY β€’ "They used to hunt lions, but now they chase squirrels. They look intimidating but they're actually very gentle."


Phoenix, Hound mix (2 y/o), Bogart & Thames St., Brooklyn, NY β€’ "She hunts rats at night. We try and catch her in the act – it's kind of nasty."


Milo, Shiba Inu (7 y/o), Bedford & 7th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "He did Westminster agility again this year, but he wasn't as fast as the Border Collies and didn't make the finals."


Glee, Golden Retriever (9 w/o), Union Square, New York, NY β€’ "We put down plastic rug protectors and she's peed on every one. We've only been getting four hours of sleep, but she's a ball of love so we're ok with it." @goldens_glee



Akila, Pomsky (6 m/o), Spring & West Broadway, New York, NY β€’ "He sleeps on his back with his paws in the air."


Ruffles, Bernese Mountain Dog (4 y/o), Chelsea Waterside Park, New York, NY β€’ "He's been on a U.K. TV series called 'Power Monkeys' that mocked Brexit. He played Putin's dog (until he got the sack). He came over on the Queen Mary from London."


(TBD), Australian Shepherd mix (1 y/o), 23rd & 11th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "We just rescued him from @muddypawsrescuenyc – he's from Kentucky. We haven't come up with a name yet. Any suggestions?"


Rocky, Puggle (7 y/o), 23rd & 11th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "I'm carrying him because the snow salt can burn his paws."


Molly, "Sato" mix (2 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY β€’ "She likes to have her hair blow dried."


Bowie, Eurasier (11 m/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY β€’ "He's the only Eurasier in NYC – they were originally barge guard dogs and were bred as a cross between a Chow and a spitz breed to get a friendlier Chow." @goodbowie


Harry, Airedale Terrier (2 y/o), 14th & 5th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "He's eaten two collars – metal parts and all. The first time he had to have surgery, the second time he passed it."


Chloe, Whippet (1 y/o), Bedford & 6th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "She's quiet at home and fast outside. She's a Whippet."


Miloh, "Comfort Retriever" (1 y/o), Chelsea Waterside Park, New York, NY β€’ "He's kind of a player. He's got a few girlfriends." @comfortretrievernyc β€’ Happy St. Patrick's Day! ☘️


Charlotte, Staffordshire Bull Terrier (2 y/o), 12th & 4th Ave., New York, NY β€’ "She's a bully."
