Dogs (With Blogs!) at Sea!

"New York, New York—it's a hell of a town!
We've got one day here, and not another minute,
To see the famous sights,
We'll find the romance and danger waiting in it,
Beneath the Broadway lights.
But we've got hair on our chests (yes, Asta, too!)
So what we like best are the nights.
Sights, lights, nights.
New York, New York—a hell of a town!"

This is the song that me and Duffy and Asta sang to welcome our DWB visitors from all over the globe to our town, New York, New York! The city so nice, they named it twice!

While the big party was at Asta's on Thursday, we kicked it off with a little get-together at my place so everyone could say hello to Mica. Then the DWBers headed off to dinner and then on to Chelsea Piers for a wonderful moonlit cruise on an 80' schooner!

Monty, Molly and Taffy's Mum came all the way across the big pee from England for the party! And yes, that's Mumsie peeking between Asta's Daddi and Mommi. Next is Stella and Stanley's servant.

It had rained off and on most of the day, but by the time the evening rolled around, it was dry and cloudy. Just beautiful!

It was still a bit misty so the lights of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building were soft and romantic.

Here's Duffy's pretty Mom!

We had a keg of Coke Zero stowed below decks for Mumsie. After all, it was a 2 1/2 hour cruise!

More members of the British Royal Family - King Simba and Princess Jazzi's NSFFM (and their brother came too, but he's not in the photo!)

The DWB Founders, Brooke and Greg were the reason for the celebration! Their first ever trip to New York! (We're certain it won't be their last!) Plus Lola, Sherman and Penny's—The Dogs of Jackman Avenue—two-legged!

Hey! It's AireRuby's CEO! With the leader of the Brat Pack!

We were really sailing - just wind power - on the Hudson, down by Battery Park, past Ellis Island, all the way to the Statue of Liberty!

We got really close to her! Even closer than this blurry photo would have you believe!

Three lovely ladies - Sophie Brador's roommate, Duffy's Mom and Lady Liberty!

(Fortunately, I checked the bow before we left the docks and Lacie was NOT along to wreck havoc! No doubt she was on a conference call with Stella and Asta, preparing for the party the next day!
Hope all of our Dogs With Blogs are either enjoying their extended time in our wonderful hometown or safely on their way home with suitcases filled with fun memories of our time together!

Our mum is now singing New York, New York.......such a pity she can't hold a note.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh Uncle Petey
What a glamorous time you all are having in New York. I am so jealous and wish I could be there too. Gail is saying, no Bertie, you don't know where you're well off, you wouldn't like New York at all, remember how frightened you were of the traffic on the main road near the grandparents' house last week?
Well, between you and me, I think that Gail too would love to come to New York, but is trying, not altogether successfully, to conceal the fact.....
Toddle pip!
