Issue 14: Spring 2001

We are kicking off 2001 with another award-winning issue filled with the best in dog culture—activities, behavior, health, literature and art. We present a new column by eminent holistic veterinarian Cheryl Schwartz, D.V.M., who brings us her recommendations on alternative health care. We are also launching a new series of true life stories called “Rex in the City,” which chronicles the life of a big dog in the Big Apple, by our editor Lee Forgotson. Few of you might know that the theme of Jacqueline Susann’s first book was about our favorite subject—so we present an excerpt from her Every Night, Josephine! We are also thrilled to announce that Patricia McConnell’s column, “Both Ends of the Leash,” will give you a preview of what to expect from her much anticipated book, The Other End of the Leash, to be published next year by Ballantine/Random House. All this, plus dog parks, skijoring, hydrotherapy, activism and much more….
