Dog Pics I Received Because I Wrote About My Dogs

Behold these infants/bears

This week, a story I wrote called “The Bridge Dog” was published on the New Yorker website. The story is about my dog Merle, who died this June, and was a bear.

It’s also about my new dog Ruthie, who I got last September, and is still around and very cute. Look at this infant.

I don’t want to tell you too much about the story, you can read it if you want to. The most exciting thing about writing it was all these beautiful photos I received from dog owners who liked it.

It has been a joy to receive so many great dog photos from so many people. I love dogs, and all pets. They are worth all the misery of losing them when they die.
