Norbert in Nyack

This Sunday we decided to celebrate Norbert's good health news and upcoming 12th birthday, we know he was born sometimes in July of 2002 as he was about 2 months old when adopted  him from the CACC in September of 2002, with an outing to Nyack, New York.  We have been to nearby Piermont, New York, several times, but never to Nyack.     We left early Sunday morning and it took us about an hour to reach  our destination.  Nyack is a very pretty little town along the Hudson, River and it reminded a lot of Saratoga Springs, New York where I grew up.  First stopped at dog friendly Gypsy Donut which has an adorable boxer as their logo.



I had a delicious coconut curry donut,

 my husband had a biscuit, egg, and bacon sandwich, and Norbert had a plain donut, which he enjoyed very much.

After our breakfast we tried to walk down by the Hudson River. 

Unfortunately we couldn't find the path and it quickly got very hot so we just walked around the town.   We wanted to stop by Urban Wolf 

but it wasn't open yet, which gives us a good reason to return. 

12 is an impressive age and a big birthday for any dog, particularly a big guy like Norbert, he weights 97 lbs, so we plan to spend the entire month of July celebrating our wonderful boy. 



  1. You look smashingly lovely and just as cute and summery as can possibly be!!! You've also suddenly made me long for a sailboat bedecked outfit of my own (I have a sailboat brooch, which is a good starting point, but not quite the same as a garment with this classic mode of transportation on it - something else to look for on the vintage hunting front now! :)).

    Big hugs & happiest end of June wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. What a cool quaint town. Love your header

  6. That looks like a fun outing and a great way to celebrate Norbert's good news as well as his birthday. Let me know how he makes out on Saturday!

  7. awe shucks, I turned 12 this year too, aside from some old joint issues, it's a fine age! I have even been acting like a puppy again, chewing up stuff and wanting to be with mommy all the time! Good luck this year, wishing you lots of bones and trips! We come up to NY every year to Lake Placid and stop by your area on the way!

  10. So happy to hear that Norbert is well, and donuts seem like the perfect way to celebrate. Good news all round.

  11. Glad to hear you had such an awesome Birthday, Norbert! And I'm also glad to hear about your clean bill of health. But most importantly, I'm glad to hear you got to chow down on a delicious donut! :)
