I went with my Squares to the Apple
Dozed and snoozed for most of the flight.
Next day.Soonest. I visited Asta
Where we dined 'n smoochied all night!!!

Now her brother seemed sort of puzzled
Ears all up in alarm!!! Poor Duffy.
"Is that you Foxy Square-what's happened?"
"You seem sort of FLAT and not FLUFFY?!!"

Toffee pupcake sent over her Mommy
To visit Asta. And me. Eric Flat.
Yep. She played a mean game of tuggie
While still wearing her Ladybird hat.

Before me and Squares went to Petey's
Gave the Apple some big ole bites
HAHAAA!! My flat self went places!!!
Want to see some unusual sights?

(no photo shopping involved in these photo's!)

First up. Went down Fifth. For shopping.
To Tiffanys. Wanna' a little look see?
Then who would blogging believe it?
At Bergdorf. A cute terrier doggie. Like me!

Next. On my list. F.A.O. Shwartzez.
This Toy Soldier saluted me in
To play 'n taunt Mango sized stuffies!!!
Which I did. With a laugh. And a Grin.

Goosie Gandered Mickey Mouse at Disney.
Met Pluto. Cool. We hung for a while.
In Greenwich I stopped by this Hydrant
For a pee. Which I did.
British Style!!!

Wigged my wag. Down. Midtownwards
Spied this building. The Flat Iron. Teehee!!!
Ooh Haaa!! Flat old Eric outside the Flat Iron!!!
Boy oh Boy! Ain’t that somethin’ to see?

Of course I woofed out with Petey.
Who barked out “My Eric. You're thin"
"Even so. You're most dashing 'n handsome
But you would be. Cos you are my Twin.”

“Guess I’ll just carry you places.
Can flat’s play catch with a ball?
Woohoo! I’ve an unfair advantage
Considering you’re not terribly tall”

“Please Eric show this photo to Rosie
To remind my wife of our marriage”
I suppose he was meaning the ballie???
Blush. Not the view of his undercarriage!!!

Lastly. Wagged in style to Marc Jacobs
For a photo session of Me. Me. Me.
As a reminder for Asta. Duffy. 'N Petey.
Biggify. Use you pies. And you'll see . . .

With squillions of special thanks to Asta, Duffy,Petey and Toffee plus of course their leggeds for extending such welcoming paws to visiting squares from across the Big Pee. Me and the leggeds had a total blast. Thanks to Brooke and Greg too who made it possible. DWB rocks!!! ( I'm doing my best to catch up.Be round to visit you as soon as I can everybloggie.)

Flat Eric,

We love New York and we love you -- so every word of your blog got us all blithery with fun and laughter.

We wonder if your leggeds will be coming back next July -- we think our flat selves may be accompanying our round leggeds on that trip. If so, we'll all be flat-pawed together.

The flat iron building is one of Mom's favorite -- now it is doubly flatstanding!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Petey said...

Hi Eric - flat and otherwise!

Boy we sure had fun, Flat Eric, but you've really got to work on your ball-playing techniques. Of course, it's harder without the advantages of legs, paws, or a tail for leverage - 3-D Eric may have some pointers for you.

We sure miss your 3-D leggeds! Come back soonest!

Your pal,


Gus said...

At trip with Flat Eric,
Well Blimey
A good time was sure had by all
But Eric, you sweet little Limey
Next time, you'll beat Petey at ball.


Maggie and Mitch said...

It sounds like you had a blast, Eric! F.A.O. Schwartz must have been fun fun!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Bobby said...

You looked like you had a good time even though you had to go flat, I think that would be getting squashed in the suitcase.

Mango said...

Eric! You didn't need to tell us that there was no photoshopping. I know all about flat selves and crazy dog ladies out and about in the big city.

What a clever post and a brilliant trip to NYC!


Agatha and Archie said...

HARDY HAR!!!! We found all of you guys in the Marc Jacobs pic!!!! After seeing Petey as Sherlock Holmes( brilliant my dear) Archie has taken to walking around with a hat and pipe and saying BRILLIANT WATSON all day long... Oh brother.......We are so glad your peeps and your flat self had a blast!!!!! Love and a squillion A+A

We wish we’d been in the City
We’re jelly as jelly can be
Your flat self spent time with Miss Asta
and the Squares and the Kroons all had tea.

You spent a day full of shopping
and rubbed shoulders with mices and dogs
but the shots with the white bear you posed with
are the envy of us dogs with blogs.

The nice consolation we realize
and we share with much thanks galore
was the royal mail postie that we opened
aft’ the delivery man came to our door.

Our Girl could not contain herself
She squealed with glee and delight
As she opened a red box packed carefully
Chock full of choc’late and treats of marmite!

So even if we could not join you
‘Mongst the city streets of New York
We baske in the pleasures of Old England
And watch for the next wheelie stork!

(Hahaha! We saw it!)
Winston and the others, Jake and Fergi and Our People xxxxxxxoooooooooo

Lorenza said...

Hi, Eric!
I know you all had a pawesome time there!
You got to go to many places there!
Kisses and hugs

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Woo SOOOO saw The Big City!

Tank woo fur sharing all your khool times with us!


Anonymous said...

You lucky flatty!
I'm certain Miss Asta was a perfect hostess as you roamed the big city!
I love all the photos you took around town.

I hope you left your "mark" everywhere you went so the city will never forget you and, since you were such a hit, I hope to find a stuffy of you the next time I visit FAO Schwartz!


luv and xoxoxo

Toffee said...

Our mini-selves had such a wonderful time. Mom cannot believe how lucky she has been to have seen you THREE times in three months!! Woot! What are you up to in January? ; )

Thank you again for spending so much time with us on such a rainy/slushy day. You are the bestest!

Speaking of rain, flat patriotic Eric is asking about squeezing in our bag when we go to Victoria this Christmas.

Thanks again,

Life With Dogs said...

You're everywhere! :)

Joe Stains said...

Looks like the most pawesome visit. I am curious about this flattening process though, looks like it might hurt? But I guess it is worth it.

Hamish Westie said...

Wow Eric, you (in your flat incarnation) have been leading such an exotic and glamorous life. I feel quite the country bumpkin by comparison.
Cheers! H.

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Eric, we are sorry we are late! Can we please be flat too - you do get flat bassets!
We could fit in the suitcase then and come to New York.
We want to meet Asta, Duffy and our dear nephew Petey.
You had such a great time and got to have such a good time!!!
Please say you will take us next time - we are soooooo jealous.
love and kisses
