On His Puppy Bed

Reykjavik curled up small and looking for all the world like the young pup he was when he inhabited this chaise lounge every night next to our bed in the old loft.

African Hand-beaded Name Dog Collar

People have always asked where I got Reykjavik's hand-beaded, name customized dog collar. Finally, here is the link. I highly recommend this collar. The beading held up to 3+ years of everyday wear and tear, including swimming, dog-wrestling, and a whole lot of running while towing me. The leather finally wore through where the buckle is permanently attached, but beading is still intact.

Night Life

Hanging out at Clumber Corner with a drink and a cigar.

Gettin' Around New York Town

Found this great bit of NYC dog transport information on Urbanhound - NYC
this is an awesome city dog website, btw.

With a little effort, you can take your hound just about anywhere in the City. In most cases, however, getting around town on public transport depends on the kindness of train conductors and bus drivers; so behave!

If all else fails, call a pet taxi (for taxi listings, go to urbanhound's services directory). Note: none of the restrictions below apply to service dogs, who, by law, are allowed just about everywhere.–Parke M. Chapman
New York City Taxis and LimousinesContact: 311
Taxi and limo drivers aren't obliged to transport your dog—but many will. The smaller your hound, the better your chances. The key is to be polite: ask the driver if he wouldn't mind; reassure him that your dog is clean, well-mannered and quiet. Tip well. For a small fee, most limousine companies will let you bring along your dog as long as you give notice when making a reservation.
MTA Subways and BusesContact: 718-330-1234
Dogs in kennels or bags are allowed on the City's subways and buses. That said, there is a restriction that states "no big dogs." Unfortunately, there's no official definition of a "big dog," which is to say that the conductor's discretion decides whether a big dog gets on or not. So be smart: travel with your hound during off-peak hours. One of our sources told us she takes her dog on the subway in a shopping cart.
Staten Island FerryContact: 311
Only dogs in kennels are allowed on the ferry.
New York WaterwaysContact: 800-533-3779
Dogs in kennels or bags are allowed on these private inter-borough ferries.
Metro-North RailroadContact: 212-532-4900
Dogs are allowed as long as they do not, in the words of a Metro-North spokeswoman, "become offensive to your fellow commuters." Unless your dog is tiny, it's best to travel during off-peak hours. Restrain your dog, either by leash or kennel. As well, Metro-North recommends that dog owners arrive early to clear their dog with the conductor (they "appreciate that").
New Jersey TransitContact: in NJ, 800-772-2222; elsewhere, 973-762-5100.
According to NJ Transit's customer service department, "Pets are allowed when they are carried in a well-secured container designed for transporting animals. Leashed animals are not permitted. Animals can be transported free of charge as long as they do not occupy a seat to the exclusion of a fare paying passenger."
PATH TrainsContact: 800-234-7284
All dogs in bags or kennels are allowed on PATH trains.
Long Island RailroadContact: 1-718-217-LIRR
Same rule as MTA Subways and Buses (see above).
AmtrakContact: 800-872-7245
The rule is simple: no dogs, ever (with the exception of service dogs, of course).
GreyhoundContact: 800-231-2222
Don't let the name fool you—Greyhound forbids all dogs, except service dogs.
Hampton JitneyContact: 800-936-0440
The Jitney allows dogs in carriers small enough to fit under your seat or on your lap. There's a $10 charge for pets.
ZipcarContact: 866-494-7227
Zipcar has modified its original draconian "no dogs in the car" policy. Dogs in carriers or kennels are allowed.

Napping on the Chaise

A little well-earned down time after breakfast. His morning workouts with his new girlfriend leave him ready to sleep. He is on his chaise lounge, the Great Dane version of a dog bed.

Big Dog Watching Big Birds

A. Reykjavik loves to sit on DUMBO beach and watch the geese, floating just out of reach.

Morning in Manhattan

Alexander Reykjavik is a versatile dog. This morning he went from The Plaza Hotel to a walk on the wild side in Central Park. I'm guessing he preferred the latter, but seems to take any venue in stride.

Reykjavik Gets a Shout-Out on the Huffington Post

A couple weeks ago we met a travel writer in Erin Rose, a local bar popular when its cold because they serve hot alcoholic drinks;)

Christie, the writer and her dog Yoda were there chronicling the dog-hospitality of New Orleans. Christie took a picture of Reykjavik standing on his hind legs looking out the window of the bar, which appears in the article she wrote on Huffington Post: New Orleans: Fido Friendly Fun.

For those of you missing the Dumbo Dane posts this winter, you can follow Reykjavik's adventures on

Mikey's Hook-Up - Doggie Cooling Center

Thanks to the friendly crew at Mikey's Hiook-Up for letting us take a brief time out at their place to cool out overheated pups. Reykjavik had had enough heat and literally dragged me in here.

Found Another Merle Already!

First afternoon in Portland and I have already met this beauty named Tank. He is only 2, and about an inch and a half taller than Reykjavik. I believe he is close to 150? But can't remember for sure now. What a friendly sweet boy. Made my day.
