I love New York! Well, my Mum says I would. All the activity, sights and sounds...she said it is just me.
She and I would both like to go sometime soon. Christmas is a great time to spend in New York, with all the decorations, activities, lights, hustle and bustle.
I'd love to see some of the great attractions in New York too. Mum says that she's always so busy when she goes there that there is not nearly enough time to see the sights.
When we go, we could use a New York CityPass. It's a booklet with tix to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim and the American Museum of Natural History. It also includes a trip to the top of the Empire State Building Observatory and a tour of the Manhattan skyline from aboard a Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise, and more! Combine all that and it would be pretty expensive, but the CityPass gives you lots of cost savings over the price of admission to these locals individually. Their Winter special runs from December 15 to March 15, just in time for the Holidays.
What would we do in NY besides visit these cool places? Well, I'd make time to visit with Chloe and maybe meet up at the Mt. Tryon Dog Park. Mum wouldn't let me rough house with the other dogs though, 'cause remember dog parks are dangerous for me! I'd stop by the DogRunNY and get in a good swim, and visit with Andrea Arden and take in a little agility.
I would definitely want to stop in and say hi to the folks at the ASPCA and see if there are any pups that they would like me to feature on my Rescue Me blog. Where would I stay? I think I'd like to try the Trebeca Grand Hotel, where they will get me my own bed, bowl, treats and menu. And they will even loan me my own pet goldfish to watch over during my stay.
Getting around may be a bit difficult, as it is with lots of dogs in NY. Pet taxis are pretty expensive, and right now us pups aren't allowed on the subway. If you'd like, you can help change that by signing the petition at ThePetitionSite.com.
Of course I would stop by and pay my respects to Balto at his statue in Central Park - and while I'm there I'd chase a few ducks and geese. There's lots of shopping we could get in, like Saks, Tiffany's, Bloomies (they all allow dogs), and of course we could take in some of the best dog boutiques.
If we went at Christmastime, sadly we would miss Dog Day at Shea Stadium, miss out on parading around the field, and helping to support the North Shore Animal League. But maybe we could go back in the Spring - there is so much to do there, I just don't know where to stop!
