Homeless Man and Dog, on Lafayette Street

Homeless man and dog, nyc
Photo by myself, around Lafayette and East Fourth Street, in NoHo.

A homeless man decided to pick up his dog, the other day, piggyback. I'm not sure what was going on here.

With the cold weather, the homeless are more noticeable on the streets and in the subways. Usually they camp out in front of churches and empty buildings.

Above, a couple homeless people and their dog camped out in front of a restaurant that was under renovation.

Odd scene. My heart goes out to both of them.

This photo really tugs at my heart. While I'm always advocating for the homeless, a homeless person with an animal always seems to break my heart even more. As an animal lover and owner myself, I've often thought that I'd do anything within my power to keep my pet alive, no matter what my circumstances were.

Gosh I hope the dog wasn't injured! Maybe his paws needs little booties to keep them warm. I hope he gets enough food. (all of them)
