This past Saturday was the day that all of Middle Earth's hobbits and fraggles descended upon the Javits Center in Manhattan for the Meet the Breeds dog and cat show, and I was there because I'm both a hobbit and a fraggle. (I'm also a muppet, but only while playing the drums.)
There were many breeds! And lots of exhausted puppies 'n pussies. As usual my camera was ready, willing, and able to capture the magic.
Oh my God, Toto! You are hella old and that scarecrow behind you will be a neverending presence in my worst nightmares.
This cutie is tired of these tedious people.
This is gonna be an awesome Christmas card.
This French bulldog is pissed, but not at me, I swear to God. I was just there to capture the tantrum.
Soft, soft doggies.
I tried to get this weird cat from Mars to look at me but she was not interested in my stupid blog post.
This was the most popular dog among my fellow fraggles.
It's not sure about my friend Ruth.
I didn't know Chrissie from Three's Company was gonna be here!
Poor dog dropped its sombrero.
Every dog wants a pink clown collar to wear around its neck.
This dog is standing as far away as possible from everything.
Who's sleepy? Yeah, who's a sleepy li'l thing? I see someone who's sleepy! That's right, I see someone who's sleepy! WAKE UP!
This picture doesn't have a dog in it, I just needed a shot of that beard. That beard deserves a magazine cover.
