Ask Dog Lady

Ask Dog Lady—Summer 2015

Category: Dog Life
Dear Dog Lady, When my ex-husband moved out, he took the dog Sandy, a scruffy terrier mix of indeterminate lineage with long legs, sorrowful eyes, and a sweet gentle personality. He had brought Sandy into the marriage 11 years ago when she was a puppy and he took her away when she was the best part of our fractured family. I can’t stop crying. He says I can come to visit Sandy and take her for a walk. But I don’t want to be reliant on my ex for anything. How do I get over this? —Miss the Dog Madly, Cambridge, MA more
