why hudson animal hospital and blue pearl suck

January 8, 2014 Posted by gretchen

Hudson Animal Hospital and Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners suck. Here’s why:

Most of you are aware of mangy Fronkles  - who I rescued over the summer, from a IMG_0515pound camper parked on 82nd Street.

Fronkles is the first New York City pound dog I saved. I can only imagine the conditions he was in. I never thought about mange before, because I never rescued a neglected puppy before. From the research I’e done, mange makes perfect sense. Frankie was in disgusting conditions, probably never had proper shots and had a greasy/dandruffy coat when I brought him home. I told the vets all of this. Here’s what they had to say:

The first time I went to Hudson Animal Hospital in September, to discus Fronkles’s persistent itching, they charged me $85 and said, “Give him a bath. Want to buy our special shampoo? It will cost extra. Maybe run some allergy tests? They’re like $500.” (more…)

Namaste family of blog

I’ve been laying low. I even took a few days off and played hooky from work. I’m not sure if it’s my Virgo sun sign or frantic desire to produce words; but I actually miss my job. I’m lucky for that.

Anyways. Things have occurred. I think the most notable thing is that I met someone interesting. In a land of bland, I haven’t met many interesting people this time through. I’d say… probably eight. So now I’ve met nine.

What makes someone interesting to me, is how they have an impact on my thought patterns. This isn’t always a good thing, mind you. I’ve met three interesting people that did terrible things to my head. And no, they weren’t all lovers. (more…)

new year. overjoyed.

January 2, 2014 Posted by gretchen

For the first time in this life, I rung in the new year from Times Square. The most IMG_0448surreal aspect of the fact was being able to hang out in my apartment until 11:45PM when we finally decided to meander downstairs.

At that point, we dove into an international smile cloud of amazingness from around the planet, all huddling in an iconic hot-spot waiting to scream “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”

In my humble opinion, New York City is clearly one of the global stomping grounds when it comes to ringing in a new year. For the past 48-hours the words off of everyone’s lips I am IMG_0453fortunate to encounter have been “Happy New Year!”

Again and again. (more…)
