Today we headed into the city, or to anyone outside of the state of NY, the Big Apple! As we headed down 3rd Ave, I scouted lots of people walking about, and the hound dog I am I had to let my presence be known so I howled as loud as I could to wake up anyone still sleeping or resting on this lazy Sunday morning.
We drove over to the Port Authority where we met up with Pam’s school friend, Barbara. There I greeted her with a soft howl but not before scouting a girl with a roll in her hand. Once Pam for corrected me from going after the roll I fully gave Barbara my attention!
We loaded into the truck with the windows wide open in the back and we were off, oh and a big bowl of water for me! Our first stop was the west side of Central Park, where we looked for my homeless friend I stole a slice of pizza from a few weeks ago. we couldn’t find him, but more about that later! (I promise!)
After we did a little search for my homeless friend, we headed back to the truck, I jumped into the back and we headed to go get a bite to eat. Pam knew of this great Vegan place not far from Penn Station called VLife. It was good great because we were able to order online and one of my human companions for the day could go in and pick up the food. As dogs really aren’t allowed into cafes and restaurants yet, although this may change at least in outdoor seating places in NYS.
So Barbara went into pickup the food and ended up treating us to a delicious meal, yes it was a birthday meal for both Pam and myself after all we do now share a birthday as I stated I a past blog! Anyhow when Barbara got back to the truck, we headed over to the east side of Central Park and sat on a tree root which looked more like a stump and enjoyed an awesome lunch together with great company! It really was a nice spot for a little picnic in the park, maybe one day I’ll get to Scout out Barbara’s new fiancé Dimitri and we’ll all have another picnic i the park there. Maybe! Oh I must say before our picnic Pam had some awesome guidance I parallel parking from Barbara and what a team, they did an awesome job!

Ok, so our journey wasn’t over we went to drop off some stuff in garbage and into the truck, then walked around a little in Central Park. When Pam looked up and saw a homeless man walking by, he looked liked my friend from July 19th so since once again Pam had her money I the truck, so she borrow a few dollars from Barbara (which she paid back most of actually she thinks she grabbed 2 instead of the 3 from her glove compartment as we dropped Barbara off back at the Port Authority in the middle of traffic so it was a quick grab). And we caught up with the gentleman which he truly was and told him he must have dropped this, for some reason Pam and I feel this was him but we can never be 100% sure, but hey at least we paid it forward!
Afterwards we got into the truck and headed over to Carl Schurz Dogpark, where I got to do a little cuddling with my new other soon to be Southern BFF, yes Barbara!
My newest BFF
This was a beautiful Dogpark where I met some new canine friends including this one that kept hanging out around us!
All in all I had a great day and by the time we got back to the truck before bringing Barbara back to the Port Authority to head back to NJ, I was tired and basically laid down I the back of the truck.
Ok, so those where my SCOUTINGS for the day, I hope you enjoyed reading and coming along for the ride with us. And you hope to Scout you out at the local dogpark or vegan cafe or somewhere else soon!
Until my next SCOUTING, have a happy tail wagging day!
