Questionable Wisdom:On Canine Confidence
I spend a lot of time at Starbucks — writing, pretending to write, staring at a blank screen, and eavesdropping.
Recently, there was a couple at the table next to mine. The woman was reading a book intently and highlighting at least one thing on each page. It was clearly serious business. Then she looked up to her boyfriend and said this:

And then I realized that she was reading Puppies for Dummies.
Then I started to wonder if I did enough for my dog Pearl's confidence. I worry that the photoshoots weren't enough.
