    I don't usually read the Style section of Sunday's NY Times...but I do admit to checking their "Modern Love" column most of the time. This time I'm especially glad I did.

    I think any of us who have been lucky enough to have a best dog friend will find it worth reading: "Four-Legged Reason to Keep It Together" by Timothy Braun in the August 23rd edition.

    I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did.

    I am not a dog person. I won't let myself. Dogs seem to love me on sight. But after 45 years traveling (No pets). The thought of the loss of total liberty, is just too much to contemplate. I know that a pet can be a great comfort, to those that are lonesome. But how can I ever be lonesome, as long as Granny, Mam-ma, Babe, and the list of names goes on........, is around! :friends:

    Great story!

    Nice story and so familiar. It's just a bit depressing to realise that there are still shelters out there killing healthy animals.

    Yes, it is depressing and more so, Olli. We just have to keep fighting the good fight and doing our best to educate people to do the right thing by their pets.
