Norman, English Bulldog (12 w/o), W 4th & Charles St., New York, NY • “He sits in the kitchen and waits for his food and cries. He chews on everything except the 1000 toys we bought him. We’re also getting through a crotch biting phase.”

There used to be a subway conductor who I loved to listen to on the D train. 99% of the them have boring monotonous voices. At this stop, West 4th St, he would always say: “This is West 4th Street. Transfer is available to the A, B, C, D, E, F, V” like he was singing the alphabet. Cracked everyone up.

Chloe, Pointer mix (2 y/o), W 4th & Grove St., New York, NY • “She had bone cancer and had surgery the other day. Now she’s a three legged dog and seems to be happier.”

Blue, Golden Retriever (10 y/o), W 4th & Greene St., New York, NY • “I had his penis reconstructed. He’s a rescue from Arkansas, and he injured it while he was in the kennel. They had to remove part of it. When he peed, it sprayed everywhere.”

Bella, Boxer (4 y/o), W 4th & Perry St., New York, NY • “I agreed to take her in for a friend and help her find a home – I didn’t want another dog. But, after two weeks it was a done deal. We bonded and that was that.”
