Welcome To Puppy Avenue 2012!

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls: it is that time of the year! I'd like to welcome you all to Puppy Avenue 2012!

Puppyavenue2012_medium

Before we get to the 2012 Puppy Avenue roster, we have to look back and honor those who have left Puppy Avenue within the last year. Some of these canines will be missed, most will not but they all served the Mets well in their time with the team (or something). Via the still awful iMovie 8, here is our second annual Puppy Avenue Memorial Tribute (note: no dogs were harmed during the making of Puppy Avenue. These are pictures from the internets.):

And now, to the dogs!
