Nyorksitty

Humom & dad went to a place called Nyorksitty but didn't take us. Humom says we wouldn't have liked it because it's all big big buildings & stuff. But they had SNOW there, how could we not like it? Oh well, our dogsitter took us for lots of walks & we guarded our home really well. We're gonna let humom post some of her pictures.

Check this guy out, everyhusky who hunts! Talk about an alpha male! He must have one heck of a prey dive to bring down a LION & then wear it's skin! Mom says this is a fabulous sculpture. (Herakles/Hercules)


Here's mom by one of the many Van Gogh's at the Metropolitan Museum of art - he is one of her most favorite artists.


This one's for Meeshka's people - they have links to save the Rosa Bonheur Memorial Park on Meeshka's blog, & this is one of Rosa's paintings. Humom says she had no idea how huge this paining was, cause she never paid attention to it's dimensions even though she's admired it in art history books for years. She stood by it so you can see how big it is.


Our humans were supposed to go on a boat to see some tall Lady with a torch who welcomes everybody to America, but a big snow storm hit & the tours were canceled. These pics are from Battery Park, where they would have gotten onto the boat. Personaly, I think playing in the snow would be more fun than tromping up a gazillion steps inside a large bronze human anyway.


This last picture is looking toward the water - it's pretty obvious why they didn't want to send boatloads of tourists out.


Instead of seeing the Statue of Liberty, our humans went to the Indian Museum & saw tons of art by North-west coast tribes... and while these particular tribes didn't have huskies, they are very similar to the Chukchi tribes who developed our breed into the fine dogs that we are. But these tribes also venerated the wolf & used his image in a lot of their artwork.


We got a little snow too, and had a pretty good time chasing each other around in it. Still, it was nice to have our people home again. Nothing like a handful of Yummie Chummies & a good belly rub to make you feel warm & fuzzy-er.

How cool!! My human woman loves art too! The Impressionists have always been her favorite, since high school! Degas is her favorite, cuz when she was a little girl she wanted to be a ballerina! What a cool place to visit!!
