Amazing New York Dogs

Not far from here the fame of the Chicago Dog is well known. It's an all beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun with mustard, onion, Nuclear Relish, dill pickle spear, tomato, sports peppers and a dash of celery salt. That's a lot on a dog and it's not easy to eat without getting some of it on you. I digress since the New York dog referred to in my title is not a hot dog, but an actual dog.

Although I actually never saw these amazing dogs in New York City, there was a sign that referred to their existence. Actually I didn't see many dogs in NYC. I did see one peeking out of a duffel bag in Grand Central Station.

Any way, these amazing dogs are able to ride bikes. I would imagine that the bikes would be small bikes built especially for dogs. You see, I actually didn't see these bikes or the dogs ridding them, but I did see a sign referring to them. Not only were these dogs able to ride bikes, they also fed pigeons. I did see some pigeons in NYC, and while I didn't see dogs feeding them, I did see some people feed them. I wonder though if the dogs feed the pigeons while they are riding the bikes or at a separate time. Since I didn't see them, I really don't know. What I do know though is that these dogs are not well liked. People don't want them on their property. I guess that's only natural since dogs and pigeons have a way of letting you know that they had been there.

I wish I would have seen one of these dogs riding a bike and feeding pigeons, but all I saw was this sign.

The Queen's Lilly

For years the Queen's Lilly has graced the kingdom. It's bloom is watchfully anticipated each summer. It is known to obey the wishes of the Queen. As the time approached for the royal family to travel from places as far away as the Land of the Rising Sun to meet here in the kingdom, the Queen instructed the lilly that it was to bloom on the day of the gathering. As the sun cast it's light over the kingdom on the morning the royal family gathered, the lilly slowly opened it's first bloom. Now as the kingdom celebrates the life of Lord Joshua, the lilly abounds with color. It's beauty is unrivaled among the other perennials.

Thus it is written in the annuls of the king.
