In Prospect Park a dapper fellow sits on a bench, cigarette in hand, and dog by his side.

Most likely, this pair of friends are patiently awaiting the first signs of springtime just as we all are doing here in New York City. This week’s photo is dedicated to our canine friends who endure all kinds of weather conditions to be by our side. The trusted sidekick and best friend to all humans, who is looking forward to a springtime walk in the park just as much as you are.
