My typist, J.F. Englert, and stand-in, R. Englert, will be appearing (and are pictured below) at Partners & Crime (44 Greenwich Avenue, NYC) at 7pm tonight to read from A Dog About Town. They hope to see you! All dogs allowed at this West Village book institution!
Thank you to all (both human and non-) for the many positive responses to A Dog About Town. As the dates on this blog betray, Yours Truly has been busy and remiss on his postings. However, I have been accumulating musings and articles for sharing and reflection. This recent one from the Associated Press demanded sharing though (the article makes much of the novelty of the “escapees,” but I have seen Pale Male, Central Park’s celebrity hawk, on several occasions in the trees around the 90th Street entrance): http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/us/AP-ODD-NYCs-Wild-Kingdom.html#
Also, noteworthy (thank you, Mr. Sweeney), is this story about a ”bad” dog who drove his owner’s car into a river (I might be biased, but I would question the owner first for leaving the car windows open and not taking his dog for a walk while he went to buy a pizza): http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070623/ap_on_fe_st/odd_black_lab_driving
I have frequently marvelled at the capacity of a dog’s nose. This article from today’s NY Times shows the olfactory capacity being put to courageous (or reckless) use. I, for one, will stay at a safe distance from these arctic characters by visiting them at the Central Park Zoo. No tundra-tracking for Yours Truly: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/05/science/05prof.html?ex=1338782400&en=01be503d3694ce44&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink
