In my blog "WALKIES" published on 15th. December 2008, New Yorker's love of dogs was highlighted. It cannot be stressed enough how prominent the canine 'cuddly' is within the NYC street scene and the obvious love, affection and pride stretched across the visages of the owners, is apparent for all to witness. Below are just a few photographic examples of the pooch in New York City:-

Let's see what some famous and erudite people have said about dogs:-
"My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet."
"They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation."
Jerome K. Jerome
"Happiness is a warm puppy."
Charles M. Schulz
"A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail
You know he's on the level."
