Sept/Oct 2010: Issue 61
Home, as we all know, is where the dogs are. In this September issue, we look at the idea of “home” from many angles, including home delivery of professional services and home-insurance companies’ breed restrictions. And let us not forget homecomings: U.S. soldiers on a relief mission in Haiti fall for a stray pup, a hunter in Hawaii takes in a stray (who perhaps wasn’t) and—in the second of our three fiction-contest-finalist stories—a man without a home rejoices when a dog finds one. We also look at the challenging topic of animal hoarders: those who can do irreparable harm to the animals they take in.
We excerpt Gail Caldwell’s new must-read memoir, Let’s Take the Long Way Home, in which she shares the story of her abiding friendship with Pack of Two author Caroline Knapp. Reader-inspired DIY home-design projects, and more, round out our take on things domestic.
