Halloween, Doggie Style

By // October 31, 2013 // Posted in Portrait

Family portrait and pet photographer Kristie Lee arrived in Manhattan from Sydney, Australia, this past January and quickly set about starting a blog focusing on her one true photo passion—dog portraits. Dogsandthecity.net hosts a collection of some of the most colorful and personable pooches in Manhattan (see “Kristie Lee Dog Whisperer,” Rangefinder, July 2013) and almost even more fun are the profiles she posts for each dog: “Favorite food, Bread & bones”; “Cheeky habits: Closing her mouth when you say…mommy clean your teeth?”; “Favorite game: Playing tug ‘o’ war.”

All of these profiles and shoots, though, seem to be really building up to what Kristie’s been waiting for all year long: The 23rd Annual Halloween Dog Parade, which took place on Saturday, October 27, at Tompkins Square Park in Manhattan.

“The parade was all I had hoped it would be, as hundreds of people flocked to Tompkins Square on Saturday for this kooky, crazy canine parade. We saw a Pomeranian pumpkin spiced chai latte, a Chihuahua-Lobster bake, a French bulldog/snail and more.”

“However not all the dogs seemed to be as excited as I was about the parade, which made it even funnier seeing sad-faced pugs, embarrassed Basset Hounds and just plain ashamed cheese-doodles, ha ha. Though most people and pooches were happy to be out and about meeting and greeting lots of fellow dog lovers.”HDP Kristie Lee- 051
