Keeping Your Dogs in a Row

Man and Multiple Shih Tzus
Photo by myself on the Upper East Side.

These six Shih Tzus had such incredible discipline, lining up at their owner's command.

My last post was fueled by several glasses of wine and a lovely night out. Tonight, I find myself with nothing to write about.

So I'm posting another photo from my walk around the Upper East Side the other day. You meet all types on the street, man and beast. These folks posed for photographs on the sidewalk before trotting off.

What a sight that must have been!

Best of luck Monday with the new job, Kitty!

Nice picture Kitty, so many dogs and disciplined too.

Kitty said...

Hallo Sally!
They made quite an entrance and left several giggling people in their wake.

Hi Spandrel!
Thanks so much for the good wishes. I'm a bit nervous but I'm sure it'll be fine!

Welcome Rebel!
Look forward to your new Daily Photo site!

Did you ask what the purpose of the little colored pom poms were? Or were they just to make the dogs cuter:)

My mother had Shih Tzu and it was one of the best behaved dogs and great with little rug rats too.

Have a good weekend.

Kitty said...

Welcome, Ollie!
Yes, some people here dress their doggies, which is quite amusing.

Hey Fish!
Funny eh? I'm so glad I ran into them.

Welcome Clueless!
The pom poms seemed purely decorative. I wish I'd had time to chat with the owner, but he seemed to be in a hurry.

Shih Tzus seem very sweet!

Oh my god I love that. Now, you know my question, right? Did you just say, "Hey can I take a picture?" or did you butter him up by scritching his dogs or what? How does this brave transaction go down? I had a woman literally LEAP away from me today when I was taking a picture...of something else entirely.

Kitty said...

Hi Kizz!
Well, I just whipped out my camera. This particular guy is probably stopped often, so he just stopped and commanded the little dogs to line up!

If you're taking a particular view and need your photo populated, have your camera ready with settings correct, and be patient. Someone or other will walk your way!

Ineke said...

Unbelievable!

Sonia said...

Oh! Those look adorable!

penpusher said...

What a cute shot!
Must be really hard to walk so many of them on an NYC sidewalk.

The guy looks like he's enjoying all the attention, lol

Kitty said...

Thanks D, Ineke, Sonia and PP!
Who isn't a sucker for dogs in costume? Mark was thinking the pom poms are for balance, lol.

PP, I think walking these guys isn't as bad as it could be...they were so well trained!
