Pax has really grown on her




West Village dog activist Lynn Pacifico recently adopted a new puppy, Pax, from a shelter. “She is now 53 pounds!” Pacifico kvelled of the growing pooch, above. After the dog run was kicked out of J.J. Walker Field about 15 years ago because local youth sports leagues’ use of the filed had grown, Pacifico founded the Dog Owners’ Action Committee, which established the Leroy St. dog run in the Hudson River Park. She and other dog owners now want to ensure the run is preserved in future development plans for Pier 40, so that Pax and her pals can stay at their stomping ground. Have a cool wagger — or cat, fish, guinea pig or iguana, etc. — you think has the swagger to be in the Pet Set? Send a photo and some words to .
