Photos Capturing the Life of New York City Dogs

New York City dogs are a unique breed. The metropolis offers plenty of stimuli for canines — places to sniff and socialize, including dog parks for the average pup and criminally overpriced doggy day care centers for the pampered pooch. Dogs in the big city contend with tiny apartments and little grass, but their personalities cannot be contained. Life is bustling, and hydrants await.

Photographer and Vermont resident Tara Wray visited New York City earlier this year and found herself snapping pics of local dogs. She created Each One Wonderful: New York City Dogs, which you can purchase over here. Dogs in fancy coats, storefront window pooches, and celeb pets (Parker Posey’s, specifically) appear in the photo book. Say hello to a few urban pups in our gallery.
