I have a confession to make.  I’m not a dog person.  In fact, I’m a little scared of dogs.  Imagine my surprise recently, when I found myself tempted by the chihuahas, pugs and other small dogs in a pet shop window in the The Village.  Maybe New Yorkers and their dogs are beginning to wear off on me!

I’ve seen dogs big enough to ride…

Curious giants…

Some dogs look sad…

While others look mad.

They travel in packs…

Or go it solo in a stroller.

Some look like their owners…

Others make their own fashion statements!

What kind of dog would I get if I could?  Hmmm, the verdict’s still out, but this is today’s favorite!
