    Will Neighbors Tell Good Dog ‘Down Boy’? Down, boy.Photo: Daniel Maurer When we first spotted the plaster puppy being built inside of the mysterious Good Dog, we knew we were in for a treat. But in an entirely unexpected twist, last night we found the canine perched above the future hot-dog stand’s awning. Even if the beast is hilariously chained to the fire escape above (hey, it’s St. Marks — of course he’s wearing a choker), it’s clear that this sign is even more menacing than the controversial cupcake. That said, if the psychedelic pimp cup outside of neighbor Gama has lasted this long, maybe the dog can rest easy.

    We Can Now Quit Snooping: Dog Spot’s Name RevealedThe mysterious plaster puppy that has been an object of fascination on St. Marks Place is no longer such a mystery — and our original report has been proved incorrect. We were told by neighbors that the establishment would be an icee joint, but now that the awning has been erected, it’s clear this will be a, ahem, hot-dog stand. The pup’s competition, the giant “Eat Me” sign down the road at Crif Dogs, may not stand a chance: Judging from the wiring we noticed coming out of its tail, this dog may just be able to fetch, and smash, bottles in true St. Marks form. Just don’t quote us on that.
