Rescuing From the Heart
It's so nice when people with scads of money rescue homeless dogs. It takes so much more humanity, generosity, and imagination, frankly, to rescue a stinky mutt from the pound instead of going to a breeder and be told which dog is "the best." Or worse, going to some sketchy, albeit very expensive, pet store on Madison Avenue and be told by some dollar-driven pseudo specialist which dog has sought-after pedigree. Gross.
Check out this New York Times slideshow of a filthy rich antiques dealer who discovered love with a pack of misfits. It's so nice.
