(c) Fran Reisner, The Dogs of Central Park
I am thrilled to be able to share with you some very exciting news. Abbey is one of the pups featured in the upcoming book The Dogs of Central Park.
Photographer Fran Reisner has spent the last few years working on this beautiful book about the amazing dogs who call New York City's Central Park their own! Abbey & Due (along with Due's peeps) met Fran one spring Saturday morning in the Park. Although I was out of town, we met up again when she returned that summer.
Last week I received an email from Fran informing me that the book (published by Rizzoli), was coming out this spring - and that Abbey made the cut. I treasure this photo and all it respresents. It's a lovely reminder of the many beautiful days we spent together in Central Park.
Sadly I had to inform Fran that Abbey had lost her battle with cancer just a few months ago. She will be one of 4 NYC dogs who will appear posthumously in this book.
Thank you to Fran for including Abbey - and for creating a beautiful book about 2 of my favorite things - dogs - and Central Park!
If the weather holds out - Ellie will get to discover Central Park this SUNDAY!!!
