Humans of New York Goes Doggy-Style

aa

A recent article on Gawker poses several refreshing thoughts about the now-famous photoblog Humans of New York (HONY). If you haven’t heard of it, the blog has amassed 8.8 million Facebook likes (that’s more than New York’s population!), and attempts to encapsulate individual New Yorkers with a photo and quote. Along with explaining just how HONY is clickbait, the writer goes on to enlighten us about founder Brandon Stanton’s propagation of stereotypes. One of the writer’s major points is that the angle of the photos and the captions chosen aren’t really fair. Of course, while not exactly “going there,” his article reminds us that two items on a screen cannot and should not disillusion us to think we’re viewing a complete human being. In summary, those who already have a preconceived idea of what New Yorkers (or just people) are really like, will be titillated to find that their pre-perceptions are right and stimulated to continue to popularize HONY.

Luckily, in dog world, we need not worry about these big words and theories, since every pooch was created equal (tell that to a dog show participant!). The Dogist, a site established after HONY, got its start photographing the furrier side of New York City. The founder Elias accepts submissions, does not share doggie quotes or suggestive photos, and does not propagate labels. It’s just good family fun, folks! But just for funsies, and because dogs are everything rainbows and snuggles, here is what they might have to say, should they ever gain the ability to speak:
