    Default"The Puppy Diaries" - X-posted

    I'll cross post this to both Lab Health & Nutrition and to Lab Chat since it's applicable to those readers, too.

    "The Puppy Diaries" is a series of weekly columns by Jill Abramson in the NY Times on her family raising a Golden Retriever puppy in New York City and nearby environs. Socializing, training, teething & biting issues, exercise, health & insurance, etc., etc., are among issues covered.

    Up to this week, there've been 9 columns -- of maybe an anticipated 52?

    IMO, while the column is well written, reading the readers' comments about any of the issues brought up gives an enormous amount of depth and perspective.

    For example, one of the recent columns I'd not previously read dealt with the issue of pet health insurance. Jill's column was good but the comments by the readers on their actual experiences with the different companies were great and very educational.

    You can find the index to past columns and topics and their links here:

    I highly commend this series, especially for the puppy owner as well as all dog owners.
