Issue 58: Feb/Mar 2010


Starting the year with a bang, we sing the praises of more than 100 people who’ve made a difference for dogs, learn about the canines (and photographs) behind the work of American master Norman Rockwell, relish the increased momentum behind the no-kill movement, and announce our new columnists, Victoria Stilwell and Nick Trout. We then round out this delicious mix with a flourish of interesting and useful articles—a DIY collar, sliding along on a kick-sled pulled by two gorgeous Siberians, the skinny on Paris’s oldest pet cemetery and, as usual, insights from our regulars. Give your dog a head scritch and settle in for a good read.
