NYC is one busy, noisy city but every so often something happens that means we slow down and just take a moment. It might be just strolling in a park which is always great. But the most surefire restful moment is if meet up with one of NYC’s animals. The ones we see out and about the most are the NYPD’s big, magnificent horses. Picked for their temperament, these great big animals take life easy no matter what’s happening around them. See this video clip of a couple of them in midtown. There are buses, cars and pedestrians everywhere but hey they’re just taking it easy and everyone who sees them relaxes a bit because that what we do around animals, relax even if you’re in the middle of a big city.
And there are dogs, heaps of those and mostly their owners keep them on their leads as they are supposed to do. But the place where dogs run free is in dog parks and even celebs take time out to just sit there with their dog and take in the sun and the pleasure of being surrounded by happy dogs.
Then, bliss time, when dogs and horses get to interract and we all get to go Awww… because it’s so great to see and it makes us feel all mushy which is a good thing. I love cats, but frankly a dog and a horse making nice is right up there and thank heavens it’s one of things that happens in NYC.
So here’s another example of a love-in between a dog and a horse because surely you can’t see too much of such heart warming friendship
Your apartment is just too small to have a dog in, or even a bird and the rats don’t count. but you need a dog fix. Just remember go to the nearest dog park and just soak up all that dog energy as they have their time outside when they can just run and play.
