“It’s a big transition coming to New York City from the suburbs of Alabama, but Tally is doing great.

She is occasionally skittish around the noises of the city, but she loves the energy here.

I’ve taken her on the train a few times and she is relaxed.

She has no problem with the subway.

In general, just in my last year of college when I didn’t have an roommates and I decided to live alone in New York, she has been my only roommate and companion and it’s great because she is there for me every step of the way.

When I transition, she transitions.

She’s something familiar and provides me with a real sense of stability.”

“It was love at first sight from the photograph.

We drove up to the shelter the next day to meet her.

We were offered a room where people meet and play with potential puppies and dogs to adopt.

When we first met her and her siblings, they all jumped at us.

We were torn between Silka and one other, but my mother suggested we go with our first instinct and the reason we were there in the first place.”

Ginkgo, the soon to be world traveling mutt (part 1)

“Ginkgo is mutt from the Kent Animal Shelter in Riverhead, Long Island.

I am going to circumnavigate on a sailboat and I will need protection, as well as a companion.

She will be more of an alert dog, than a protector.

I knew I needed a small dog because I will be on a small boat and Ginkgo was the only small dog at the shelter.

I’ve had her for four years.”
