Pets as People

A new column about humans and their four-legged family members. By Silver Disobedient Judy Katz

From website, by Dian Griesel.

This new column will explore the after-life. No not what happens after we die. Rather, it will be about what happens when many of the major milestones in life have been accomplished.

Specifically I am going to write about how our four-legged, canine friends factor into our lives. This first story is mine. Keep reading this column for others—and feel free to contact me if you’d like to share your story.
