Everything got turned around lately. People have been stressed about the pandemic. But dogs – dogs, on the other hand, are having a jolly old time. They get to a spend a lot more time with their owners, and in their minds the humans in the house should be there all the time anyway.
And the dogs take more walks than they did before – a lot more. They’re also talking longer walks than before – walks where they have time to sniff everything and look around and take in the flora and fauna. Human beings are finally getting a clue, the dogs think.
Recently Gaslight Property asked Cliftonites to share photographs of their canines. We wanted to create a sort of scrapbook devoted to this unique period of time. Eventually we won’t be at home as much, and we won’t be able to take our dogs for as many walks, so we better chronicle this period when the Clifton dogs are happier than ever. They’re loving every minute of their vacation. During their walks they have endless energy, but Cliftonites have also noticed that their dogs are napping a lot.
Here are some photos that fellow Cliftonites sent us. If you don’t see your dog but would like it to appear in this scrapbook, just post a photo to the Facebook page where this blog entry appeared and we’ll add it to this collection!
Our picture album will grow in upcoming weeks, but this is a start. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far! Gaslight Property’s blog has been with us for over eight years now, and during that time it has served as a sort of scrapbook of Clifton in general, with its new stores and restaurants, the reopening of the Ludlow Garage, the loss and reemergence of our grocery store, and annual events like CliftonFest and the Halloween celebration that takes place on Ludlow Avenue every year. And its people – and now its dogs!
