As I plan a family trip to NYC in April I can't help but remember our trip to the Big Apple last April 19th. The same day the Pope was in town. The same day it was 80-something degree's. The same day we walked miles upon miles, and lost my daughter on the subway. The same day I ended up very sick.
Hopefully this trip will be a little bit more enjoyable as we are staying IN the city, plus my husband is coming along so I won't end up by myself on the bathroom floor with the paramedics picking me up and taking me to the ER. Lucky him, he had to drive down to Stamford, CT (a 3 hour drive) with a friend so the friend could drive my car and the girls home, while he sat with me in the ER for several more hours. Food poisoning ... total exhaustion ... not sure what it was I had but it wasn't part of the plan. Ah yes, the good old days ; )
There are some good memories though and this is one of them:
The girls and I had stopped into a cafe' for something to eat and drink, as well as cool off and rest our feet. When we walked out the door I noticed this man and his adorable little dog sitting in a car, obviously waiting for someone.
I'm telling you this dog lives a better life than I do! Aren't they so freakin' adorable? If my husband owned a porche I can guarantee he would NOT let the dog ride in it. He doesn't even let the dog ride in the car he owns now and it's a Subaru! lol!
I've always wondered what happened to the little dogs ear. Attacked by a larger dog perhaps? Is it a rescue dog? Either way, the lifestyle it leads obviously makes up for any previous hardships.
