Invisible Dogs

Yesterday we had another Improv Everywhere event!
Charlie, the founder of Improv Everywhere, met someone who had access to over 2,000 invisible dog leashes.

They were passed out to thousands of people who then walked their invisible dogs around the neighborhood.

Kids in Cobble Hill were so excited and wanted to pet them all!

There were dog walkers,
Had to seperate the dogs because they were fighting!
bad dogs that needed to be separated because they were fighting,

It made a lot of people in Cobble Hill laugh.

At one point I was able to put my camera down and take my dog for a walk. Of course all it wanted to do was roll around in the garbage!

You always make me smile. And you'll be hearing that till the end of times from people (all over the world?), I guess.

But serious! I had a bad day and you took my headache away. Thanks! :-)

Katie,
Invisible dogs was my first Improv Everywhere event (I live in Philly and it just hasn't worked out in the past), and I had a blast. I always read your blog so I was hoping I'd have a chance to say hi, but it was so crowded! So, "Hiiiiii."

I'm getting some film developed from that day, and I'm going to write up a post on our agency's blog. I'll have to link to your post here, because you covered it so well.

Great pics!

What a great idea!
I have to look if such a thing like 'Improv Everywhere' exists here in Berlin.
It's a crazy city, so it should be here as well.

Katie, you have a great blog!
You make me and many other people smile.
Thanks!

I wish that Seattle had Improv Everywhere!

Now...how do you feel about cloning? Because we need more people like you in this world :)

I hope you know that you are making a difference in people's lives, including mine. You exude love, selflessness, and kindness without asking for anything in return. Thanks for sharing your adventures. The world is better with you in it.
