New York! New York!

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit some of my NY pals and my *sweetie* Eric, well flat Eric in the city that never sleeps - New York Cit-tayyyy!

Believe me when I tell you that flat Eric was indeed there - he flew all the way over the big pee I tell you!
(although he appears invisible in these pictures - maybe invisibility is a side effect of jet lag?)

Here is a cute picture of Asta welcoming us into her home on a rainy day.  Flat Eric said he was sorry that he brought the rain with him but I think the rain was from the tears of the other DWB friends that were unable to make it to the big apple.

Below is a picture of flat Eric and Asta playing hide and seek with a paper bag.

We took the Amtrak train from Beantown to NYC. Unfortunately, Riley and I had to shrink ourselves to go unnoticed by the conductor.  Since it was a bit wet outside the group decided to stop for a "cap-paw-cino"

After our hot drink we then decided to stroll along 5th avenue to see the Christmas windows.  Unfortunately the weather insisted on not playing nice so we ducked into a really neat store called Takashimaya.  They have a lot of really neat Japanese articles there and a booootiful floral department!

This was the only picture that we could get before we got disciplined for posing with the posies.  After taking a tea break in the fancy tea shoppe downstairs we attempted to stroll along 5th Ave again before heading home to Beantown.

Thank you to Ami, George, Asta, flat Eric,  and the 2-leggeds for a wonderful day!!

One last pic of me passed out on my lamb and much expanded after eating the NYC cookies that Eric bought me...nom nom nom nom...

It looks like you had a wonderful time, despite being disciplined among the posies. Some people just don't get it. (Think of all the positive publicity you could have generated! And such cute and well behaved little dogs, too.)

So. Is that how you do it to puff up? Eat cookies? Imagine! Seems we coud have figured that out around here!

Hope the rest of your holidays are as pleasant as these few days appeared to be!

Oh, invisibility is definitely a side effect of jet lag.
