Boston Terriers Gone Mad, at the Mad Dog Run

Boston Terrier meetup
Photo by myself at the Madison Square Park dog Run, at 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue.

A meetup was held this weekend in Madison Square Park. Boston terriers and their owners descended on the dog run that is also known as 'Mad Dog Run'.

At least 20 nutty black and white dogs pranced on the pea gravel. Incredibly enough, our dog Rupert is not in the photo above. He must have been causing trouble elsewhere.

Boston Terriers come in different sizes and body types. Some are more gangly, bug-eyed, athletic or hyper than others. They all share an alertness and love for rowdy play.

The cutest dogs had to have been the puppies. Aboute 50% of their play wrestling revolves around head fakes and giving each other the 'stink eye'.

There's our dog Rupert on the left, emerging victorious. He leaves his buddies in the dust.

Totally love these Meet Ups. I took my dachshund Eddie to one once and he was ignored by all the other dachsies, but the bigger dogs all wanted to play with him. Needless to say Eddie hid under a bench the whole time.
