LAST GASP: McGolrick Park Farmers Market

Dog eating pie

Regrettably I did not make it in time to check this out. I spent the afternoon showing the inimitable Kevin Walsh of Forgotten New York around points green and beyond.* But WarmSleepy got this great shot of one of our local canines enjoying their wares. Great capture!

*Including making the acquaintance of Franklin the pig, a fellow Mets fan!

Urban Fur: Dog Day Afternoon

When one thinks of our Bravest, invariably one thinks of dogs. I mean, what would  our bravest be without a canine presiding over the premises? Pretty damned lame if you ask me!

Thus I was pleased as punch when I walked by Engine Company 237 yesterday and spied the above pup performing his duty.

While not a Dalmatian (the breed most associated with the fire-fighting profession) you gotta admit “Mugsy” does have his own unique charm.

It was explained to me by a co-worker that Mugsy was relaxing after a much-enjoyed bath.

As the “face” of this operation I can assure you Mugsy takes his appearance quite seriously.

Especially when it comes to the ladies!
