A lovely piece in today's New York Times about how owners of older dogs are cheering Stump's victory at Westminster.
Now, I know there's controversy about dog shows--no question; the controversy is even playing out here, in our lively comments of yesterday.
But surely there's no controversy over loving our old dogs, and being happy when they thrive.
You can read the story here. It's sweet.
And just for illustration, a picture of a Very Old Dog who is close to my heart. Boscoe, 13 1/2, and still a winner.
