My 5 Favorite New Yorkers: June


It’s time once again for my favorite New Yorkers of the month.

These choices are based on this dog’s opinion of each candidate’s dog friendliness, animal advocacy, good-eggishness, and general New Yorkitude. Honorees may be humans, animals, or institutions.

In no particular order and without further ado…

What Have I Been Up To?

Hello, everyone. I have been a little quiet lately. I was busy taking care of my People while they were under the weather. Fortunately, my stomach has been perfectly healthy, enabling me to eat as many treats as possible. I have even been indulging in the occasional green bean lately—quite a refreshing snack in warm weather!

In addition to dealing with Her unfortunate bout of illness, my secretary recently enrolled in a full-time course for the summer and has been very engaged with the assigned pre-work. So I am sorry to say that She has been neglecting her blog duties and has not been very attentive to my correspondence either.

If She were not the one who controlled my food supply, I would probably dismiss Her, but as it is, we will have to reach some kind of compromise. What this means is that I will be posting a little less frequently, and I may not be able to comment as often or at length, but as always, I will continue to visit my fellow bloggers and delight in reading their posts.

In other news, my recommendation of Peggy Gavan’s diverting local animal blog, The Hatching Cat, was picked up by the New York media blog FishbowlNY in a post entitled “Albert the Dog Picks Up Newsweek Scent.” FishbowlNY, according to its own description, “covers the pulse of New York media. For more than 10 years, our reporters and editors have covered the shifting landscape in the media capital of the world.” I guess this means that Ms. Peggy and I are considered part of the New York media landscape! I assume that I will now be invited to all sorts of fancy media cocktail parties where I can eat a lot of chicken satay and other hors d’oeuvres while rubbing shoulders with Charlie Rose and Anna Wintour.

I’ll be back on Monday with a slightly belated 5 Favorite New Yorkers for June. Until then, enjoy your weekend, everyone!
