Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 2.14.38 PMSalon.com just uploaded my article “The Big Money Behind Best in Show.” It is the first adapted article to be published from The Dog Merchants, giving readers their first sneak peek into the book.

The Dog Merchants is a follow-the-money look at the whole of the dog business, breeding and rescuing alike. This piece for Salon.com was written for publication as the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show begins airing on television, so of course it focuses exclusively on the breeding side.

Rest assured that more adapted articles and excerpts are coming soon—including a 3,000-word excerpted piece about rescue that will appear in the February issue of The Bark. Stay tuned.
