She was a companion, but not exactly a member of the family. So when he adopted Stella, a Labrador mix, from a shelter as a birthday present for his son, the images from his youth were strongly imprinted in his mind.</p><p>Though neighbors on his New York City block lavished expensive clothing, doggie birthday cakes, and thousand-dollar medical treatments on their dogs, Homans was determined to draw a boundary.</p> Wed, 05 Dec 2012 16:12:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 53331 at http://wamc.org "What's a Dog For?" by John Homans
