Spoiled dogs of New York

Jack Pierson, Tom Borgese, and Angel with bird

"I don't have a bumper sticker that says I LOVE MY CHIHUAHUA," confesses artist Jack Pierson. Nevertheless, Pierson and Borgese are smitten with the little dog. Angel "was a total impulse," admits Pierson. Initially, he had gone to the Humane Society of New York to adopt a cat but was rejected when he said he needed a mouser. Angel joined three birds, all Sun Conures and all nameless, at Pierson's loft on Canal Street. "I saw the birds in a flea market the day my brother died," the artist explains. One is a loner, but the other two seem to enjoy popping their heads in and out of Angel's mouth.
