Hot Dog: Doing Double Duty as a Therapy Dog
Picking out a puppy is like house hunting or wedding-dress shopping. You know in your gut when you’ve found the right one.Pari Chang, Bark
The day I brought my puppy home to Manhattan, a giant article appeared in The New York Times reducing him to a fashion accessory. Headline news: Boston Terriers, dogs for the hipper-than-thou. But I didn’t get my little guy to lift my social status. I got him to lift my father’s spirits—and add quality to the time he had left.
A note to my husband Geoff and me lay on the nightstand in our spare bedroom, where my father slept on chemo days.
Thanks for your hospitality.
Sorry about soiling the sheets.
P.S. A baby or a puppy, I don’t care.
