Since then, the cards and letters continued to arrive at the EV Grieve P.O. Box. How is Kita? How is she adjusting to life here? That kind of thing.
So we got in touch with Kita's owner for an update.
Kita the Wonder Dog of East 10th Street has spent her days acclimating to the neighborhood. She had a close call with some sort of terrier mix that got off its leash while crossing Avenue A and lunged for poor Kita.
Being the wonder dog that she is she literally leapt out of its clutches and received an ovation from the people seated outside Café Pick Me Up. Kita is heavy into the dog run across the street. While she enjoys chasing pigeons, we’ve tried to explain to her that there’s nothing stealth about a dog with three noisy dog tags and a bright yellow ball in her mouth trying to sneak up on a flock of unsuspecting birds.
She remains undeterred.
Kita spent a recent weekend up in Connecticut and went on a little boat ride.
Once we were smack in the middle of the lake, (Bantam Lake, in Litchfield County, the largest natural lake in Connecticut for those who might be interested) she promptly fell or jumped in — it was hard to tell which. Turns out to be a reasonably good swimmer.
On the next episode: Kita applies for a liquor license.
