DOGS

New York goes crazy for Lumi: the dog that takes the subway....on the shoulder

Sometimes, complicated regulations require ingenious solutions. Specifically, in New York, a woman decided to put her dog in her backpack to get around the law that prohibits dogs from entering the underground unless they are in a special carrier. 

The story of Jackie Hornung, a 24-year-old woman who was forced to carry her dog Lumi, a one-and-a-half year old Samoyed weighing 23 kg, in her backpack, has made the rounds on the web, since in the Big Apple it is not possible to take dogs on the underground unless they are in crates. 

Many citizens are finding special solutions to get around this strict rule, but Lumi's is one of the most peculiar stories. The dog does not seem to be bothered, but rather accepts caresses and kibble with pleasure, even posing for photos of onlookers.

Lumi, in the subway on the shoulder
It is really making everyone smile the story of Lumi, a one-and-a-half-year-old, 23-pound dog who was carried on the subway by his owner in a backpack, holding him on her shoulder, to get around the rule of having to keep dogs inside the carrier when using public transportation to New York.

His viral story on Tik Tok
Millions of people flocked to the Chinese platform to watch videos posted by Jackie Hornung, a 24-year-old American girl, who carries her Samoyed dog in a backpack so she can carry it around during the day. Lumi is the dog's name, which means "snow" in Finnish.

The girl was also interviewed by the magazine Newsweek about this unique way of carrying her pet. The 24-year-old, however, commented that Lumi "likes to be carried" and remains "quite calm" while inside the backpack.

The transport regulation of Nel York
The story of Lumi has made many people think about the very harsh rules introduced by the "Metropolitan Transportation Authority", which force dogs to remain in carriers on subway trips. Travelers, however, have arranged themselves in a variety of ways: some use a bag fromIkea, some use a waist bag, and some hold them in their arms or on their shoulders. So, it is strange to say, but Jackie Hornung is actually complying with the law.

The girl: "Lumi weighs half as much as I do."
Also, also at Newsweek, the girl commented on why she takes these videos on social media, "It's pretty heavy... it's almost like there's a giant baby on my back. A little less than half my weight. We are just trying to spread the social media presence of Lumi, mainly because we love to make people smile. And what could be better than a giant bear or a cloud in a backpack?"
