On a lighter note .....
I've really come to love taking my Napoleon to the dog run at Tompkins Square Park. It relaxes me and my "fag child" lives for it. Once in a while I take him to other runs like Union Square, Washington Square and Stuyvesant Square, but Tompkins is our favorite, the closest thing to having a back yard. Being a dog daddy has brought me into contact with so many people right here in the EV hood that I'd never have met otherwise, and it gives me such pleasure to watch my little French bulldog romp and play with all his friends.
The other French bullogs he likes are Margaret, Chula, Kermit, Violet, Batman, Edie. There is also Diesel the Pit Bull (Napoleon's hero), Chester the Pug, George the Boston Terrier and his Lab mutt buddies Jessie and Clark. Napoleon doesn't care for the dainty, tea-cup varieties of canines. He likes hearty small dogs and big dogs. Naturally he is always well turned out in his skull-studded black collar or brown and powder blue harness, my proud little New Yorker.
There is the small dog side, which is kind of like a kindergarten playground. The big dog side is more like the high school parking lot with a tough crowd and dog fights but sometimes I let Napoleon venture over and strut his stuff. J'adore le dog run!
