Off the Deep End
It’s 104° in Park Slope today! Wayyy too hot for a pug to be playing outside.
Luckily, we’ve been sitting on never-before-seen footage of Sid taking a refreshing dip in the Prospect Park dog beach.
Much like how Noodles freaks out over bubbling brooks, Sid turns into el pug-o loco whenever he goes into the calm waters of a man-made pond. Instead of having fun and swimming like the “normal” dogs, Sid becomes mesmerized / confused by the liquidy depths. He essentially loses his mind while trying to get the acorns and berries that lie not on the surface of the water, but on the concrete surface below. Also, you’ll notice in the beginning of this clip, that he also seems to think that his legs have disappeared. It’s all very confusing and disorienting, but if anybody’s got the determination to pull something “edible” from the depths of the dog beach, it’s Sid.
