I’ve never met Jackson, but Canadian photographer Peter Thorne has captured the depth and beauty of this old canine soul.
If you’ve had the privilege to share your home with a senior dog, you know what I’m talking about. Their love is constant and unconditional and patient, with very few grumbles considering their declining health.
Thorne is putting together a collection of photos of older dogs called “Old Faithful” that he hopes to show at a gallery or assemble into a book.
If you’d like to learn more about his project that celebrates my favorite senior citizens, visit his Facebook page.
Does tennis great John McEnroe have a history of histrionics?
But I take issue with media outlets like Page Six calling his recent comments about New York City cyclists a ‘rant.’
My neighbor was simply speaking the truth.
McEnroe was speaking with ABC correspondent Lynn Sherr at a Central Park Conservancy Women’s Committee luncheon when he made the remarks, citing his experience as a cyclist himself.
I didn’t attend the luncheon, but his remarks in the article give an accurate account of the majority of cyclists’ behavior in Central Park. They travel at dangerous speeds, don’t break for pedestrians, and have caused numerous injuries and even a few deaths.
I personally appreciate someone of McEnroe’s stature bringing attention to this situation.
Remember when we had unbiased media who filed the stories?
Living a block from Central Park in Manhattan, I’ve been known to get a bit grouchy come Saturday morning when yet another group of runners clog the streets and walkways and generally disrupt my morning walk.
Don’t they know we dog people own the park?
But today there was a run that even I can get behind –
The New York City Cupcake Run
This 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race for people of all ages challenges participants to go the distance while stopping to eat three cupcakes at checkpoints along the course. Tasty!
