Happy Valentine’s Day to all my sweet friends! Many, many hugs and kisses.

And a special smoochie to my friend Max who came to New York for a surprise visit. After he spent a good bit of time with my lovely sissy, Asta, who showed him the town (as only she can), I wanted to show him around my ‘hood. We spent a lovely time walking through the snow in Washington Square Park. And had to duck a few snowballs along the way (those NYU kids!). As we passed the Knickerbocker, a great old Village restaurant, we stopped to listen for a while to the jazz piano player just finishing a set. We took a quick tour through SOHO to do a little window shopping and finished up at Happy Paws Day Spa for one of their special treat plates. A nice ending, I hope, to a whirlwind NYC tour.

Great to see you, Max.

Luv to you all,


  1. Well done Duffy!

    Mom and I are furry jealous!

    Washington Skhware Park - WOW!

    Thanks fur sharing your toddlin' town with Max!

    PeeEssWoo: Happy Valentine's Day to woo!

  2. Even I have never been - I hope Max enjoyed the tour! :)

  3. It just wouldn't have been a complete NYC tour without a little jazz at a Village club. We're sooooo happy you shared that time with Max. He certainly must've relaxed and regained some energy for the next stops of his tour. Did you tell him there are places you can LiveStream them, and listen live, all the way from South Africa when he returns home? That's what we've been doing recently ... pretending we are right there in your City, listening and loving the ambiance.

    Hope your Valentine's Day is nice. You sure helped to make it a nice day for Max. That makes us happy.
    Jake and Fergi xxoo
