You would think it was my birthday (*cough* *December* *cough*) with all the lovely gifts I have received recently. Really makes me one little grateful dog.
Check this one out! My friend Mia brought her doggie Schnitzel (on the left) here to get neutered. As a thank you, Mia and Schnitzel baked me and my friends at the Humane Society of New York some amazing, delicious, ooey-gooey brownies! Since I can't have them (chocolate is toxic to dogs, grrrr) my human friends are devouring them as I type. I barely had time to take the photo before they dug in to the adorable package!
And this is how I have been spending my afternoons...
A special thanks to the Nate Berkus Show and his crew for making my belly rubs that much more enjoyable! They donated these super comfy dog bone floor mats from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
My friends were just recently on set filming a really fun segment that will be airing on October 20th, so watch for that!
Boy am I thanking my lucky stars today!

Occasionally my life gets sparkled with some glitz and glam. Today there were two special visitors that came by to learn all about HSNY and meet everyone here. I wanted to extend a thank you to Miss Earth New York, Lisa, and Miss Teen Earth Northeast, Brandi. They were so lovely and I wish them both luck in their national competition in this far away land that they were calling Daytona, Florida! Hope to see you both again soon! Smooches!

The Gotham Gators took all of our adoptable dogs for a walk to
I just love this picture of my friend Mr. Flops. He looks SO happy!

The kids met some of our adoptive animals and learned about pet care, animal adoptions and our hospital. They met my sister Misty and gave her a good brush, which is her favorite thing in the world! I also helped them learn what the word “humane” means, and some of the ways a city dog can enjoy being outside by taking them up on our rooftop run. Luckily we just missed that terrible rain storm that was rolling in, as you can see from the clouds in the photo! They were like little sponges soaking up knowledge and it was a pleasure and honor to have them pick US as their destination for Take Your Child To Work Day!

I have known this lovely lady for years now. We've watched each other grow up and whenever she can come over to help me with my duties as resident dog, she does. Just look at how much fun we are having!
Then in the afternoon, some out of town friends came over. Naturally, I assumed they just came to visit me (LOL!) but actually they came bearing gifts for all of the animals. It turns out that they are BFFs of Toby Tobias III, one of my HSNY pals in the adoption center. I insisted on giving them the grand tour which included two bunnies here for adoption (Ebony & Ivory) and introduced them to all my buddies. It was a super good time and I told them on their next visit we could have lunch at Serendipity's! (Allowance permitting!) ;-)

Wow this past week was very lovely and although I enjoyed myself thoroughly, I am tired. On Wednesday night, our good friend Wendy hosted a
The next day was the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Did you know that it was the 250th anniversary? That’s 1750 in dog years!
Hope you had a great weekend and got some fresh spring air. Til next time, Willis.
Here's a photo of my friend Winky with his
dad Robert and our friend Wendy.

The cleaning reminded me that I wanted to remind everyone that it is very important to get pets their dental exams. We can't gargle or do it ourselves so please help us out. Vets can do the major cleanings but owners can do small things too!
Happy brushing! You and your pet will appreciate it.

Turns out her name is Annika Vrklan and she was a guest on the show as well. She is a Guinness World Record holder for her skateboarding and she is only six! When she skates, she wears these really cute helmets and one of them has pink bunny ears where she got her nickname "The Flying Bunny".
It just so happens I got a set just like em!
We can't wait until she comes back to New York City to visit us. Best of luck Annika!
You can find more information about Annika on her facebook page, HERE.

On my way to the ball drop this year, I took the subway, just like most New Yorker's travel. Just wanted to take this time for some reminders on travel tips, especially on the subway.
Always, always, always keep your pet in their carrier. Unless it is a service dog, they should never be loose. You never know what could happen, plus it's against the law.
Also, carry a little water and food for them.
Don't forget to bring their leash and collar and tags.
Never leave their carrier unattended if they are inside.
Don't forget to bring bags and tissue to pick up after them. No one needs an extra little new years present laying around!
