There are two things that are close to my heart -- writers and dogs. As early as 7 years old, I knew I wanted to write and despite severe allergies, I've always dreamed of having a dog. Now I have a adorable little pooch and I get to write this blog for my fellow pet lovers! Hurrah!
Recently, I was tipped off to a cool event happening at Symphony Space in Manhattan. It's called Writer's and their Dogs. I highly encourage you to attend and support writers and dog lovers!
Here's more details:

Dogs appear alongside the writers and actors!
