Shio: “I’m not shy! I’m just too cool for you!”
Of course, Shio. My bad.
I actually lived in Brooklyn Heights for a few years. The walk was pretty nostalgic for me. I got to see a lot of new city improvements to the neighborhood. The new parks along the pier are beautiful, as was our late afternoon stroll through town under the shadows of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
Shio’s dad Josh (left), and my cousin, also named Josh (right). All three of us paw-parazzied our way through the Heights. The batteries in my X100 were running low from shooting the High Line all morning, so I spent some time with my cousin’s Nikon D7000, which I used to take many of these images. Insanely good camera.
It was a hot day in New York. It wasn’t long before our double-coated furry friends started tiring. At times, Shio would just halt mid-walk and lay down. Had to carry him for a little:
…..and/or pamper him during his protests. Speaking of protests:
Shio: “No, humans! We MUST enter this here bakery!”
Shio: “Do you not want some freshly baked noms? Or A/C? What’s the matter with you people?!”
Don’t you just love Shiba smiles?
That’s one cool family right there. Make sure you check out Josh’s post about our meetup at the Shio Blog: Shio vs. Jonathan Fleming.
