This week in the New York Times

I got my fifteen minutes of fame this week. Reporter Sam Dolnick of the New York Times saw my blog about debarking my shelties. He had never heard of such a thing, so he contacted me and wrote a thoughtful article about the subject after interviewing people on both sides of the debate. We spoke several times, and I gave him some names of vets and others he could interview. He quotes me at the end of the article:

Terry Albert, of Poway, Calif., said her life revolved around dogs: she boards them, rescues them, and even paints portraits of them. And she refuses to give them up. She has had two dogs debarked.

“You may think it’s horrible,” she said. “But if I had to give up my dog or get the surgery, I would choose the surgery.”

I've been amazed at how many people I know who saw the article and contacted me. The good news is most people seem to agree with me, though I have also been soundly ridiculed on a few blogs. Such is life.
