Announcing the Top Dogs Virtual Tour! Join us for a FREE virtual tour of this exhibition! Just reserve a free “ticket” and you will be emailed a link to the tour. No donation is required, but always appreciated.

This exhibition takes a closer look at the top ten breeds, examines their histories, and speculates what exactly about them captures the hearts and minds of so many Americans.

The in-person exhibit at the AKC Museum of the Dog in NYC runs from May 6th to August 31st; I’m assuming the virtual tour is the same.

Sign up here.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

AKC Museum of the Dog Store

Bulldog Butler Tray

Every once in a while, I make a post about goings-on at the AKC Museum of the Dog in New York City. What I didn’t know until recently is that they have an awesome museum store that you can access online if you can’t make it to the city so nice they named it twice.

They have holiday items, stationery, and dog toys, among other things. One of my favorites is pictured above and featured in the Home Decor section. It’s a needlepoint valet tray featuring a really cute Bulldog Butler. Continue reading AKC Museum of the Dog Store

From the Dog Lady’s mail bag: The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog will officially open its doors in New York City on Friday February 8, 2019, at its new location, 101 Park Ave, just steps away from Grand Central Station. The Museum houses one of the world’s largest collections of canine fine art.

Located in Midtown Manhattan, the newly designed space will house art from famous dog artists such as Sir Edwin Landseer, Maud Earl, Arthur Wardle and many more. It also has a two-story glass vitrine that encases rare porcelains and bronzes, in addition to a library where users can learn about their favorite breeds. The Museum’s first exhibition will be entitled “For the Love of All Things Dog” and combines select works from the AKC’s own collection and that of the Museum.

Subway Dogs

You’ve heard of bag ladies; now NYC introduces bag dogs! JustSomething.com brings us a photo gallery of dogs in bags on and around the NYC subway system.

The Transit Authority recently banned all non-service dogs on their trains unless the dog fits in a bag. The problem? They didn’t specify bag size. New Yorkers are nothing if not creative, as you can see by the two photos here.

Check out the whole gallery for your viewing enjoyment.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

New York City Dog Parks

Beautiful French Bulldog Puppy Dog Pup Puppy Whelp OutdoorMy new Monday feature brings you locations and details about dog parks in major cities. This week, we’re looking at New York City, which as you no-doubt know, doesn’t have a lot of green space outside of Central Park. To find out about dog-friendly areas in the city, I consulted Animal Alliance NYC, an initiative of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals. They list several reference sites, one of which is the NYC Parks Department, which in turn offers an extensive list. My list below gives you one example from each borough.
