New York City prides itself on letting celebrities live their lives.
While you do see stars of TV and film out and about, you rarely see paparazzi trailing behind.
So I was particularly amused by this Huffington Post slideshow of stars picking up their dogs’ poop — all West Coast shots, mind you.
Everyone from The Office’s John Krasinski to Catherine Zeta-Jones to Paul Bettany are pictured with their pooch and that familiar blue baggie…’cause your dog doesn’t care what you do for a living as long as you take care of their business.
Personally, I haven’t spied any celebs in NYC picking up after their dogs. I have had a celebrity spy on me and my dog.
(It’s a favorite story — a ‘greatest hit,’ as my friend Dan would say.)
My dog Rory and I had just stepped outside of my apartment, and — good dog that he is — he was relieving himself in the street. During this process, I heard a small child’s voice from the sidewalk behind me say,
“Daddy, is that dog gonna bite me?”
A very familiar voice responded drily, “It probably won’t.” That’s when I turned around and saw Jerry Seinfeld watching me and my dog.
But don’t worry — he didn’t take any pictures.
He’s a New Yorker, after all.
