Hershey & Cadbury

Their Story Captured in Times Square Photo Shoot

Last winter, "dogs I meet" photographer, Mindy Dutka was walking in Central Park and two dogs caught her attention, one of whom was in a doggie wheelchair.

Turns out these two dogs, Hershey and Cadbury were very special. Hershey was 19 years old and Cadbury, 13 years old.

Mindy was touched by their owner's, Max and Fran's devotion to Hershey and Cadbury, who walked them twice every day from their apartment in Times Square to Central Park.

Mindy offered to send them the photos , immediately upon receiving them, Max called and asked to schedule a photo shoot in their "backyard," Times Square to honor their relationship with their dogs.

The irony is Max, Fran, Hershey and Cadbury came from Baltimore and retired to NYC and landed above M & M World.

Their love of chocolate was evident everywhere they turned.

The photo shoot was serendipitous.

Their beloved Hershey passed just three weeks after the photo shoot.

In the words of Max & Fran

"We are so grateful to have these priceless photos. Mindy captured Hershey's personality so perfectly, looking at the photos, we feel he is still with us."


Max added, "Hershey captured the hearts of many street vendors, doormen, shopkeepers, homeless individuals, and countless commuters who counted on seeing him every day. Many would leave their posts, come out, and pet Hershey."

Cadbury and his parents are still out daily enjoying Times Square.
