"All The Good Dogs I've Loved..."

We wanted to call you attention to this beautiful essay we just read in the online version of  The New York Times. It's written by Dana Jennings, and adapted from his new book, "What a Difference a Dog Makes: Big Lessons on Life, Love and Healing From a Small Pooch."

We won't give away too much, or it will disrupt the beauty of his writing, but he did say this: "If there is a heaven, some sort of afterlife, I'd like to think of it as a place where we get reunited with all the good dogs that we've ever known."

Enjoy reading the full essay right here:

And while we're at it, this same New York Times blog had a post just the other day about dressing up your dogs for Halloween-ha! What do you think about that subject? Yes or No?

You can read that post right here too: well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/28/do-dogs-like-to-dress-up-for-halloween/

Thanks for pointing me to the NYT essay. The book sounds like it'll be great!

We don't dress up our dogs because it seems to distress them too much. But, if a dog doesn't mind it, I don't see any reason not to!

Wonderful recommendation!

And no...they would kill me if I dressed them up. That's why I use Photoshop. ;)
