Anna Quindlen celebrates the visceral love we feel for our canine companions, specifically, her recently deceased Labrador retriever, Beau. Known to many for her NEWSWEEK political and business columns, Quindlen infuses this brief essay with feeling instead of fact. Her broad New Jersey accent caresses the memories of Beau's 15 years with his people, and the lessons each taught the other. When the time comes for the family to ease his walk to the Rainbow Bridge, we hear the tears in Quindlen's heart, as well as in her voice. Caution: Do not listen to this in public unless you have a heart of ice or don't mind people watching you cry out loud. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
