Happy Holidays from Washington Tykes
Before the scoping meeting on Monday, I got Max down to the park--the windchill was below zero at that point, and he definitely needed his coat.
As we headed for the 158th St. stairway on our way home, a PEP vehicle showed up almost precisely at 9:00am--Max was leashed, and there were no problems, but be on the lookout for white vehicles with green markings--they also have Honda sedans.
A while before that, Max made a new friend--Derby is a Lab/Hound mix. Only five months old--first snow! Grown-up dog to pester and imitate! Yehhhh!
For a happy dog in a loving home, every day is Christmas--or Chanukhah, or Kwanzaa, or Eid--actually, dogs probably do sense the winter solstice, which is celebrated in all the above. Most humans can only manage a few days of genuine holiday spirit each year. But there's no merrier time than one spent with a new puppy--and to all people & pooches who are embarking on a new life of companionship and challenges together in this tough tenderhearted city, savor every moment, and we'll see you in the New Year.
