Good reads

Clearly a lot of people, clueless and otherwise, are seeing the movie Marley and Me; the flick was box-office champ for the second consecutive weekend. I only wish that the clueless members of the audience would read this press release from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

And I wish that a lot of other well-meaning individuals would read this great piece about the realities of rescue by a veteran, Phyllis DeGioia, on Pet Connection's blog.

And finally, check out this thought-provoking report by Rebecca Skloot in yesterday's New York Times magazine on how today's assistance animals aren't necessarily dogs.
