Ridiculous Puppy Indulgence Alert: Doggy Water Park To Open On West Side

Don't you hate when your dog looks a little over-heated? Doesn't it break your heart that he's color-blind (and therefore can't possibly understand how fab your new green coat is)? Isn't it simply unbearable watching him drink water from a bowl and bathing in a tub, instead of getting spritzed by a motion-sensing fountain? We thought so too, and the city planners of 2013's new Hudson River Park clearly agree.
They've set aside a plot worth $6.5 million to accomodate the city's cutest canines in a doggie park fit for Air Bud, himself. Not only will there be umbrellas for shade and more than enough water to lap up and play in, but the ground itself will be comprised of a special pavement meant to look bright blue to Rover's otherwise limited vision. As frequenters of the Tompkins Square Park doggie run, we're psyched to see what those silly hounds will do with all of this, but we also think they'll be just fine suffering through the next two years with a lamb bone, some squirrels to chase, and a few sprinklers to run through.
