We chose “Journeys” for the overarching theme for our May/June issue. We have articles about taking your dog abroad and how a family found a new dog while on a Caribbean cruise. Catherine Ryan Hyde’s evocative photos and essay highlight how a traveler can spot amazing dogs everywhere she goes, from Indian ashrams to Peruvian villages. Even Rex takes his first vacation, heading down South with his people in tow. From Elizabeth Berg, a new short story about a couple coming to terms with an expected, yet sudden, loss, and the surprising effect this has on their relationship. And from another part of the world, a witty piece by Suad Amiry, a writer and architect from Palestine, about how her little dog was issued a very precious (and rare) Jerusalem passport.
