for DOG lovers!

For forty-five years retired teacher Ruth and artist Alex Cohen have lived in their East Village co-op, but now the elderly couple finds the five flights of stairs unbearable and their cherished dachshund named Dorothy can no longer move her back feet making it that much more difficult for them. They need to move to a place that can better fit their needs. 

"Heroic Measures" by Jill Ciment is a story about the weekend of stress this couple endures while getting ready for the open house, and realizing that their beloved dog has something seriously wrong with her. Their lives may seem ordinary, but the story is touching, especially for you animal lovers who will do anything for that pet that will do anything for you!
