Meet my morning mates.

This is from left to right: Chanel, she’s one year old and just passed a course to be a therapy dog; Luke, he’s five monfths old and an Australian shepherd; at the end is Clara, a swell Samoyed. Clara isn’t there every morning, but she’s the best sport for letting me bite her ears.

Every morning my mom and my pup’s peeps hang out in Washington Square Park. There is a dog run there, which I go to sometimes at lunch, but in the morning my friends and I hang out in front of the fountain. So we need to be on leash, except for Luke, who comes when he’s called. Mom seems to think I would bolt if I saw a squirrel or another dog across the street. Sheesh! (Don’t tell her but she’s probably right). Anyway, the leashes don’t seem to inhibit our play.

Mom says sometimes we really look like a pack of wolves.

Don’t let that little Luke fool you, he has razor sharp shark teeth and can take care of himself. Besides, he will soon be twice the size he is now, so I better get my licks in while I can.

And mild-mannered, therapy dog Chanel has quite a not-so-tame play personality.

Fall mornings wouldn’t be complete without breakfast. Chanel and I must have cleaned the park of about a bushel of leaves by now.

Enjoy the season!



  1. Bitey Bod!

    Sure is nice to meet your friends in the morning!
    I can see the leashes are not a problem to have a good time!
    Kisses and hugs

  12. You've got some great friends there!

  13. What a lovely bunch of doggies! Get those bitey-bites in before those dogs get big - not sure about eating leaves though - seems a lot of fibre without much taste?

    Sally and Paddy

  14. That looks like a lot of fun. Isn't it great to have a mongrel-around with friends on a regular basis?? We reckon that's what life is all about...

  15. Oh Duffy...this is Babystan...plowing through leaves in one of my many talents...Mumsie sez I look like a snowplow...they just smell sooooo goood.....sorta like a steak or something...

    That mornin' pack of urs is fab!!! We loved the movies...plan to watch em again with popcorn!!!



  16. HA! looks like oodles of fun!!!!! WE do get a little out of sorts though when a leaf or twig gets stuck on our feet and then we start walking weird and Pl2 has to pull it off or we won't walk!! BUT we never thought of eating them!! FABULOUS idea!! Love and kisses A+A

  17. Heya Dufff...glad to see your mom is back in sorts. Thanks for joining the circle for Miss Snickers. See ya there


  18. Hey it waz grayte to meet yor mates!!! :@}

  19. Hi Duffy
    That was fun.. I agree with A and A.. I never thought about eating the leaves but good idea. Your pack looks too cute to be wolves.. until you unleash the razor teeth.

    Hope mom is feeling better.
