The Emperor of Downtown Crossing

Here is the cutest dog that has never been in a subway station!
Last night Napoleon was waiting for the orange line at the Dowtown Crossing station with his mommy, Kristen, and everyone was looking at him...

... even too much... he got bored of that!

We met a Famous Dog!

On the streets of Newton Center we happened to meet Stephen Dean and his famous dog Murphy, a 5 year old Golden Retriver. Stephen regaled us with the story about when he received a ticket in the mail adressed to Murphy. The citation was issued because Mr. Murphy decided to take a walk without his leash. Murphy was given two options: (1) to pay the ticket or (2) to request a hearing. Stephen requested a hearing and signed it on Murphy's behalf!

Murphy's story has been published on almost 150 websites!
Read the full story here:

We think that Murphy is a very cute and nice dog who should not have to go to court!

Running free in Newton

Last thursday, we visited parks in Newton after hearing about how pet owners are efond of taking walks there. We met a very friendly pooch named Mika (pictured above) and her owner, Jim (pictured below). The pair recently moved here from LA and both seem to have adapted well to East Coast life.

We also met Loki (above), a 6 month old Springer Spaniel, and Juke (below), who is 15 years old!

Peters Park

Peters Park, located in the South End is trying to raise money in order to better the aesthetics of the area. We stopped by the fundraising event organized by the Friends of Peters Park. One innovative way the park is raising money is by selling personalized "concrete pawprint pavers". Below is a picture of the paver installation plans.

Numerous shops in the area have already contributed to the event, including Polka Bakery where we met Charlie, an adorable Beagle!

We would like to give a special thanks to Mary, Heather and all the volunteers for all their effort!
