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.

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.

Check out the whole gallery for your viewing enjoyment.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

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.

Unclaimed Pets After Superstorm Sandy

I had previously saved a link to this video in my e-mail, intending to post it soon after it appeared on NBC News last January. At the time, 136 pets were in need of placement before the emergency shelter was closed. However, the e-mail somehow got buried and I just found it the other day, so I sent a note to the ASPCA in New York City to find out how they were doing on placing pets who had been abandoned or lost when Sandy hit the east coast.
