Your eyes are not deceiving you.

This pup (which I spied on Eagle Street and whose name is “Smudgy”) is in fact, chartreuse in hue.

Obviously I had to get to the bottom of this. Me:

I thought I was seeing things. Your dog really is green!

Smudgy’s Person:

Yeah, we dyed him for Halloween. We wanted to dress him up as Yoda but he came out looking toxic.

Me: So he was more like a Newtown Creek dog!
S.P.: Exactly!

Yesterday yours truly took it easy. However, as the afternoon whiled on I found myself drawn (by virtue of the lovely weather) to go on a little walk. Follows are some highlights from my sojourn. Enjoy!

If there’s one thing that breaks my heart it is lost pet fliers— this doubly true when I see them literally plastered on anything and everything able to hold them. If you have seen Ophelia or know of her whereabouts please contact her people at the above-listed telephone numbers. She is clearly very loved and missed!

Lost In Greenpoint: Anna Konik

I found these fliers around Manhattan Avenue and Greenpoint Avenue this afternoon while running errands. If you have seen Anna or know of her whereabouts (she was last seen around Eagle Street) please contact her loved ones at the above-listed telephone numbers. I have little doubt they are worried sick. Thanks!

Urban Fur: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Tabby

Yesterday, not unlike the day before it, was a busy one. When all was said and done I wanted one thing and one thing only: a Pina Colada. This has become my drink of choice lately and seemingly none of the copious watering holes hereabouts make them. Luckily these are easy enough to create. To this end I headed to the Mini Mart Deli Grocery at Eagle Street and Manhattan Avenue for supplies. (For those of you who are not in the know they have a pretty nice selection of juices.) And last night I learned they have added something— or should I say someone— to their rather already eclectic establishment.

Meet Tiger.

He was almost as curious about me as I was about him. Almost.

He preferred my camera strap.

Not this deterred him from subduing a particularly vexatious piece of twine and guarding the cat food. It didn’t. This little guy may new to the job but he is learning the ropes! No pun intended.
