171 E-mails from Strangers

图片取自 The Fifth Paw

  On our forth night in the hotel I got an e-mail from a reader in Maryland, who asked if we were anywhere near the fires. She described herself as a dog rescue person, and was of course concerned about the dogs.

  I wrote back and told her that I thought we'd lost the house and asked if she, as a dog person, had any idea how to transport twenty-seven dogs cross-country. She didn't, but she vowed to ask the question online and get some ideas.

  Over the next forty-eight hours, I received 171 e-mails from strangers, most of them offering us their home on the way to Maine. If we were coming through Topeka, for instance, we could stay in someone's home, with twenty-seven dogs!

  It was an amazing example of what is a remarkable subculture of dog people in America. They are in every city and state, bound together by their common love of dogs. And it had just demonstrated to us in a very powerful and touching way.
