I make outsized ScooterSnacks for Saul, my favorite mastiff at Ft. Greene Park. They're the size of a baseball. Usually Saul can gobble it in 5 seconds, as opposed to the half second it takes him to gulp a regular-sized snack.
Anyway I made him one this morning which I forgot to bring to the park. So I put it on the chair beside the door so I'd remember to take it to him tomorrow.
Well my little gentle Ben, who never steals food, decided enough was enough and quietly purloined the giant snack. I turned around and there he was happily sitting on the couch contemplating the uber snack he was about to attack. It took him longer than 5 seconds to eat, but not by much.

How beautiful it's been today. I love snow, snow, snow. And so do the dogs.
This is sassy Izzy with a bit of Jack's ass on the side.
And here's Izzy, Jack, Tenzin, Ben and Machiavelli waiting for a ScooterSnack this morning.

Ben has the most wonderful dog walker, Paul, through PawPaw Pet Care -- fabulous service in Brooklyn run by Melissa and Adam, two animal-loving artists. (See more about PawPaw: http://zoomnyc.org/2009/11/10/business_dogs/.)
Paul comes to pick up Ben in the afternoons for a romp at the park. Usually Oola is his walking buddy. Oola is the sweetest, sleekest, blackest, just-out-of-puppyhood lab mix. She and Ben play like fiends.
Here they are fooling around in my apartment.

Not a magician, just an extraordinary Frenchie.
Normally I only have pictures of dogs at the park but this one of Shanti was so spiritual I had to make an exception.
This is how she sits. She wasn't posed.
Think of her when you're meditating.

ScooterSnacks Movie made with love by a fantastic bunch of women and their dogs at Ft. Greene Park in Brooklyn. Thanks especially to Stefanie Dworkin who filmed and edited, Clare Piaget who also filmed and did some of the animation, and Joan Albert who art directed and did animation. There's strength in community!

The park on a Saturday in fall is glorious! After off-leash ends a parade of eager shoppers and their dogs parade over to the market for fresh vegetables, fish , delicious milk, etc. Those puppies who don't do so well walking around the stalls are hitched up at the park entrance.
