Stay home. You have to be out by sunset. You're breaking the law. Animals usually aren't allowed in such parks(I don't know about ZP) And even if you're dead set about going, don't put your dog through this retarded bullshit. You have clothes, it doesn't(and if it does.... wow).

gee thanks for the information officer... what are you some kind of park ranger? plus, come on..."you have clothes, it doesn't"... dogs have fur. which provides far superior insulation to any article of clothing that i own.

Although I'm not in NYC necropaulis is correct to a certain extent, Zuccotti Park 'ain't what it used to be.' The city has cracked down big-time. I'm not sure what the specific situation is however, especially sleeping overnight. I figured I'd comment on this post so maybe you can get some more accurate specifics before it falls off the page. You are right about the dogs though. Their fur keeps them a whole lot warmer in the cold than most people realize, although I would never leave them outside for extended periods of time, especially if they're used to the warm inside. They have a higher body temperature also. I've seen my dogs (Chows) lay on the concrete for a couple hours in heavy snowfall before and it didn't seem to phase them. Amazing.

I don't know what you have. A golden retriever can stand more than a chihuahua. No I'm not a park ranger. Park laws are basically the same across the nation. Plus, I wouldn't want to get bitten, or have someone else bit because people want to rowdy and freak my dog out. Cops also may not be comfortable if you cart a wolfhound around either. See where I'm coming from ??
