Photo by myself on Madison Avenue and 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side.
I spotted a couple tiny dogs wearing fur coats on Madison Avenue, Tuesday afternoon.
These dogs are Papillons (the French word for butterfly), a toy spaniel breed, named for its unique, fringed ears. These dogs come in several color combinations, usually a single color like brown or black on a white background. They had thick, silver colored leashes. For more about this breed, click here.
The owner was just out of frame, also wearing a black fur coat. I wanted to ask her for a photo, but she was speaking to someone and I had to dash off to a meeting.
Madison Avenue is a very ritzy street lined with boutiques and apartment buildings. Among the many shops there are the Armani, Calvin Klein and DKNY flagship stores, as well as Barney's.
