Just Another Dog Day Afternoon in the City


I am unacquainted with the folks in animated conversation on Seventh Avenue yesterday. I think they were unacquainted, too, until their dogs stopped to get to know each other. I was taken by the troop of dogs meeting and greeting and couldn't resist a photo. On second reflection I think the man with the many dogs is actor, Austin Pendleton. He's been in many television shows and was the voice of Gurgle in "Finding Nemo."


I spent a quiet day today, catching up on blogging, my sweepstakes entries and grocery shopping. I did pop out to see a movie, "The Queen of Versailles," which I enjoyed a lot. It's not about France, but rather about a real estate developer and his wife who were building the largest house in America, until the economic downturn got in their way. It more than held my interest and gave me a lot to reflect on.

What I think will become a tradition is my link to A Rural Journal and the photograph Linky party, Your Sunday Best.  This week's theme was Autumn Overload and I posted my photograph of pumpkins taken at downtown Manhattan deli. Not the usual, but my favorite picture of the week. Please stop by and enjoy some terrific photographs.

Wishes for a sweet week!

Hello Sweet Friend...
What a fun post today. Imagine that taking a picture and turning out to be an actor. Fun, fun, fun. I can just see the excitment on your face when you realized who it was. He has some beautiful Weimaraners that is for sure. They are gorgeous.

Thank you for your comments on our Rasha girl. I am so lost without her. I knew it would hurt, but oh how it grabs. I miss her bark and her wet nose nudges most of all. She was so special.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I love watching dogs and their people! These dogs look like they are getting acquainted quite nicely. Frida and Beans love to go out to read their "pee mail"!

Wow! That man is pretty brave trying to handle all those dogs at one time! I'm amazed at how calm they look just waiting patiently for him!

It seems that as a character actor, he is pretty much the same person in real life. Weimaraners are very good natured dogs and seem to suit his persona. (See Wegman's wonderful weimaraner calendars!)
