Which is why, at the onset of last winter's deep freeze, I got him a sweater and some booties to keep him cozy outside. He dra- matically acted like he couldn't walk. I put away the get-up and let the pup freeze his paws off — and comfortably retreat back to a bed or sofa. (Advertisement: Like-new dog attire, free to a good home.) Mary Chellis Nelson Managing editor Tristan is 10 but has the spirit of a pup. A couple summers ago I was a nanny, and Tristan and I stopped at Subway one day on the way to pick up the two kids. The plan was to picnic at the park. I left Tristan in the car as I signed out the kids at school. By the time we got to the car, Tristan had eaten all three sandwiches. Oh, and I had even stopped at McDonald's to get him vanilla ice cream so he wouldn't feel left out at the picnic. Brooke Wyrosdick Operations assistant The first night I had Atticus, I let him sleep in my bed. In the middle of the night, he crept into the crook of my arm and lay on his back, feet up like a dead cockroach. Afraid that I had somehow killed my new dog, I poked him awake. A week later, he stole a sandwich right out of my hand. Michelle Eigenheer Contributing writer My daughters tolerate conversation, just barely, but bristle at human contact. They reserve their affection for animals, all types. My house has been a foster home or forever home to, at one point or another, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hermit crabs, baby birds and one lucky bat that flew into our pool. Just yesterday, I sent this text to my older daughter: "Do not kidnap the bunny." (Long story, but turns out she didn't.) Right now, we have Piper and Izzy, both mutts, and Luna the hedgehog. Not pictured: the fish. Oh, dear, I forgot: We have fish. Deana Nelson Circulation
