Issue 25: Winter 2003

We kick off the Winter/Holiday season with an issue that is sure to delight and, hopefully, move you. Our cover features an exquisite portrait of two best friends (a Siberian Husky and Australian Kelpie) by New Zealand photographer Rachael Hale. Novelist Ann Patchett writes a tender essay on the joys of a domestic life. We investigate canine sidekicks in detective fiction; and we track down those hardworking dogs at Denali National Park. We look at Greyhounds and the dedicated people who are rescuing them. With a nod to our “25th” issue we showcase our favorite sterling keepsakes. Patricia McConnell looks deeper in the mind of the dog, Jonica Newby puts forth the Dingo as “dog-mother” hypothesis—Rex’s guardians start getting serious about their future—all that plus new products, water therapy, vintage gift cards and our very first resource directory to give you a headstart on holiday gift giving.
Order this issue online or visit your favorite bookstore/ newsstand today—don’t miss out!
