More Photos of Canelo:

Misha was walking his cinnamon-colored dog when I approached them.

What is his name?

Canelo, it means cinnamon in Spanish. Basically, if you were Latino and you saw somebody who look like that - with that king of coloring. You nickname would be Canelo. The same way the Brits call redheads Ginger.

And what breed is he?

Don't know. He's a mutt. He's from Cuba.

Did you fly him from Cuba?

Yeah. He got here just a month ago.

Why did you get him?

I didn't. My father did. But he's getting on in years. When the dog arrived, he figured he could take of him. That means I have to take care of him.

Describe Canelo

A lot of dogs look like this because of a limited gene pool. He's about 11 months old. He likes ot sing.

How does he sing?

If he hears the siren, he starts howling. If I play my guitar, he starts howling.

Misha Erwitt is an established photographer - his photographs have been exhibited at the International Center of Photography and Nikon House in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. For 11 years, he was a staff photographer for the New York Daily News.
