Issue 32: Fall 2005

In Bark’s Fall 2005 issue we explore fresh starts, second chances and the joys of making a difference. We show how dogs are helping wildlife management and ensuring the survival of other spieces. It is our pleasure to present Shelter Dogs—a moving portrait inside a Montana animal shelter by Elizabeth Stone.

Our feature, The Fashionable Pet, documents the surprising history of pet-pampering through the ages. And, we introduce “Unleashed”—a madcap romp into the social milieu of a NYC dog run—the first in a new series by Gregory Edmont.

Plus a invaluable information including: Coping with Loss, Canine Rescue in China, Trail Running, Defusing Dog-On-Dog Aggression by Patricia McConnell and much more.
