“Before I moved here I got rid of a lifetime of stuff.
Six months after moving here my cat sitter came to see how the dogs were living and she cried from joy.
She was the one who had rescued them and couldn’t believe how far they had come.
The dogs love New York City.
They were invigorated as soon as they got their first whiff of the brisk November air.
The down side that immediately occurred for me, was that I stopped going to yoga at 9 a.m. because I am out walking the dogs. But, I still getting exercise walking them.
Alternately, some of the best moments have been off leash in Central Park, on our morning and late night walks.
It’s complete joy.
Elmo just takes off and runs. He is exuberant and loves running.
Frida had been abused so it’s a good chance for her to deal with her fear and interact with other dogs.
Having dogs brings me out too. I am not a social person but I get out every day with them.
They bring me great joy.
Pets in general are a great part of my life.”
