Nor was it enough for her to fly from her home in Atlanta, Georgia, to PETA’s headquarters, the Sam Simon Center in Norfolk, Virginia, for the clinic’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. And it wasn’t enough for her to hang around for the 24-hour “SNIP-a-thon”  that we held to celebrate both …

I like to joke that my rescued greyhound, Jasper, is like a canine Barbie doll. He has an outfit for every occasion: two fleece jackets, a lightweight winter coat, a heavyweight winter coat, a raincoat and even pajamas.
