Op-Ed Nominated for National Award

boston-globe-op-edI was thrilled to learn today that the Dog Writers Association of America has named my May op-ed in Boston Globe Magazine  one of three finalists for best opinion piece/editorial.

My piece is titled “The Good, the Bad, and the Biters.” It’s about new rules the state of Massachusetts was seeking to impose on rescue groups bringing in adoptable dogs from out of state. The idea was to ensure that each dog received some sort of temperament testing, and to ensure that adopters were made aware of the dogs’ temperaments before bringing them home.

The other two finalists for the DWAA award are “Bald-Faced Love” by Noah Charney in AKC Family Dog, and “My Brilliant Brat” by Elizabeth Jarrell in the Aussie Times.

Winners will be announced Sunday, February 9. Congratulations to my fellow nominees!
