Nightlife

January 13, 2019 The Dogist

Some dogs have really active nightlives. These dogs have no curfew and are trying to get into the hottest nightclubs in the city. They’re cute, they’re wearing their best harnesses, and they’re putting their best foot forward. With any luck, they’ll meet a really cute pup on the dance floor (aka “outside”) to boop snoots with.

1. Cutter, Golden Retriever (13 w/o), 2nd & Bowery, New York, NY • “He’s actually the perfect puppy – he entertains himself, chills out, and falls asleep all by himself.”

2. Lilly, Hound/Mastiff mix (9 m/o), Marble Brewery, Albuquerque, NM • “Loves her ‘piggy’ (a stuffed animal) and peanut butter on her bone.”

3. Finn, Sato mix (4 m/o), Bourbon St., New Orleans, LA

4. Koko, Pit Bull/Boxer mix (7 w/o), Frenchmen & Decatur St., New Orleans, LA • “She’s my emotional support animal. I feel like nobody cares about me. I replace their love with puppy love.”

5. Max, German Shepherd (1 y/o), Grand & Berry St., Brooklyn, NY • “Take it easy, Max!”

6. Maverick, Golden Retriever (7 y/o), Caroline & Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY • “He enjoys when I read him bedtime stories – fiction or nonfiction.”

7. Puma, Leonberger (20 m/o), S Mill & Hyman Ave., Aspen, CO • “He runs Aspen. He wrestles in all the parks. He shit all over the house last week. When we take off he gets moody; he chews up everything and shits everywhere.”

8. Roadie, Beagle/Miniature Pinscher mix (7 y/o), 3rd & Broadway, Nashville, TN • “She follows me everywhere I go. We’ve been to most states. We had a car but it died. Luckily we still have our music.”

9. Clive, Labrador Retriever (3 y/o), Caroline & Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY • “He’s a Guiding Eyes for the Blind release – he was too stressed. Now he’s an ambassador. I can set my watch by the time he wants to eat – 4pm every day.”

10. Mellow, Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix (2 y/o), 4th Ave. S. & Broadway, Nashville, TN • “He’s homeland security.”

11. Tito, Golden Retriever (9 w/o), Greenwich & W 12th St., New York, NY • “This is his first day in NYC. He’s not potty trained but I taught him how to pose.”

12. Gigi, Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix (1 y/o), 14th & 3rd Ave., New York, NY • “This is our second photoshoot today. She’s a snuggler and likes to hunt pigeons.”

13. Trooper, Jack Russell Terrier mix (8 y/o), Prince & Sullivan St., New York, NY • “He got hit by a car and then was adopted. It looks like he has a metal rod in his leg. Does anyone have a magnet?”

14. Sullivan, Leonberger (2 y/o), Broadway & Astor Pl., New York, NY • “He’s a chick magnet – obviously they don’t come over to talk to me, so that leaves him.”

15. Titan & Druk, Great Danes (8 & 3 y/o), Spring & Crosby St., New York, NY • “Titan is a mama’s boy and Druk is laid back. They’re both used to getting a lot of attention.”

16. Bean, mix, Animal Wellness Center, Gilbert, AZ

17. Huey Lewis, American Bulldog mix (2 y/o), Franklin & Greenpoint Ave., Brooklyn, NY • “He’s fun loving and takes big poops.”

18. Romeo, Doberman Pinscher (3 y/o), Spring & Broadway, New York, NY • “All of his commands are in German.”

19. Crumpet, Dachshund/Spaniel mix (2 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “He’s very relaxed… until he gets excited and wiggles like his body will break in three pieces. He also has a strong moral compass.”

20. Poopface, “Beauzac” Terrier (10 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “We had the name picked out before we got him, but it fits him, doesn’t it? The city of New York has him registered as first name ‘Poop’, last name 'Face’, so he’s addressed as 'Mr. Face’. We didn’t know his breed, so we just made one up – he’s from a farm in Beauzac, France. He knows three languages – English, French, and dog.”

21. Benson, Shiloh Shepherd (3 y/o), Pier 64, New York, NY • “Our Maltese is the alpha. We have a 7-lb Maltese that runs a 110-lb shepherd.”

22. Knox, Great Dane (8 y/o), Prince & Sullivan St., New York, NY • “He lost his leg to cancer last year but is doing well now. He loves to cuddle and thinks he’s small.”

23. Atticus, Chihuahua/Schnauzer mix (5-6 y/o), 6th & 2nd Ave., New York, NY • “He might bite you. He’s super territorial. He’s blind in one eye and half-blind in the other. He’s not sure of his surroundings.”

24. Michael, Greyhound (5 y/o), Broadway & Astor Pl., New York, NY • “We’re from Prospect Heights. He likes vanilla ice cream; I take him to a parlor and he eats his scoop all in one bite. He also doesn’t know how to sit.”

25. Simba, Golden Retriever (10 m/o), West Broadway & Broome St., New York, NY • “He likes watching TV – particularly Seinfeld. He’ll just watch the entire episode.”
