Whilst walking around Central Park admiring the Gates last weekend, I decided that, were I ever to move to a city by myself, I would buy a small, portable dog and take him with me everywhere I went.

I also sort of wished that Henry were capable of being walked; I would have liked him to be there with me.  He matched.
