Off the Leash:A Year at the Dog Park

Matthew Gilbert

Gilbert, a TV critic for the Boston Globe, was the last person you would have expected to find at a dog park--until he married a dog lover and adopted a yellow Lab named Toby. Soon, he and Toby were drawn to the grassy fields of Amory Park. Gilbert shares the stories of the park’s two-legged visitors and their four-legged friends, including Hayley and her Bernese mountain dog; Nash and his golden retriever; Drew and his mutt, Chester; and Charlotte and her (way too aggressive) whippet.
