Pet Project: Trooper

Trooper is a 4 year old terrier mix living in New Rochelle.  His favorite thing to do is play catch. According to Loop photographer Jacki Silberbush, who captured this shot, “He may look small, but can seriously catch it every time.” Have a pet you love, that needs a home or just know a great one? Submit a photo and we’ll feature it in “Pet Project”

A Dog’s Life

(this story is re-published by request.)

My dog, Scooby Tecumseh Sherman Sawyer, died recently. She was an 11 year old, lazy-as-can-be chocolate lab, and she will be missed. This is not like losing a parent. This one really hurts. I’m not one of those people who take the whole dog relationship too far; I mean I never lost sight of the fact that she was a dog.
