THE BEST WAY to spread compassion is to adopt an animal and in the sunny southeast (Ireland) that means visiting Inistioge Puppy Rescue for a walkabout among 30 homeless dogs. We have adopted five strays in six years so we're well-versed in sussing out the kind of personality best-suited for our lifestyle. At the moment, it's fluffy Pomeranian although my heart went out to several older dogs that Brenda Stone has in her kennels.
I'm visiting the Inistioge Puppy Rescue with two groups of students who are enrolled on a PR course that I teach and if their plans bear fruit, we'll have engineered several cool things that help abandoned animals find homes faster.
