This week’s photo is of Lady Bug.  Naturally, because she is such a cool dog, she is rocking a feather extension (a trend that is so popular right now, a basic search on Google yields more than 7 million results).

Lookin’ good Lady Bug.  Stay classy.

While the rain has been persistent all week, it’s looking like it’s going to be a great weekend to be out and about in the city.

Here are some dog-friendly events happening this holiday weekend in the city:

Fleet Week
New York’s Fleet Week has been running all week but it’s not too late to check it out (especially if men in uniform is your thing).  All weekend long there will be displays and demonstrations occurring all over the city.  Check out the Fleet Week website for more information.

Additionally, if you’re looking for the best way to dress your dog for Fleet Week, we’ve got your covered.

Memorial Day Parades
There are parades all over the city on Monday, May 28th.  Manhattan has its parade uptown, Queens is hosting it’s 74th annual parade, and Brooklyn will be hosting its 145th annual parade!  Not only are parades a great excuse to eat delicious street food, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to take your dog out to explore the city and meet some new friends.  See the city calendar for more information on the parades you can find throughout the city.

Memorial Day Barbecues
We’re not necessarily telling you to show up uninvited to a holiday barbecue, but honestly, if the food is good, we aren’t going to judge you for it.  That being said, whether you are invited or not, find out if dogs are welcome, and if so, bring your pup along for a day of food and relaxation.

On a more serious note, no matter what you end up doing this Memorial Day weekend, please enjoy the holiday responsibly.  Your dog will be most appreciative!  From all of us at Union Square Dog Walker, have a fun (and safe!) weekend!

On the 4 train from 86th Street to Union Square…

…an adorable pit bull puppy, looking somewhat scared of all the noises around him, but also looking quite comfortable on his owner’s lap.

But really, is there a reason to question how intelligent dogs are?  I mean, look at this.

New York City may be a concrete jungle, but with ample space in Central Park and many other parks in its boroughs, along with the overall attitude of its residents, New York is ranked as one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country.

Bella Dog Magazine ranked New York City as its #10 most dog-friendly city in the U.S. in 2011, DogFriendly.com ranked New York as #9, and TopTenz.com ranked New York #4!

For anyone who lives in or visits New York City, it should come as no surprise that the city is very dog-friendly.  The city as a whole is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and it’s easy to get anywhere you need to with ease, which also means that your dog is more likely to get some quality exercise with you or your dog walker.

One weekly feature that we are going to include in the Union Square Dog Walker blog is building off of the idea that there is never a shortage of things to do or see in the city, and your dog can certainly be included in some of your adventures.  “This Weekend in New York” will highlight some of the best places to go and things to do in the city with your dog.  We hope you are as excited about this as we are!

And while it may only be Monday right now, we thought this might be a little something to get you through your week.
