Celebrities' Donate Goodies for Humane Society Auction
The Humane Society of the United States is holding an online benefit auction, offering a bunch of unique items donated by celebs. They're calling it “Star Stuff For Animals,” Oct. 16-Nov. 17. How can you possibly live without "Cher’s five-button jacket with a beaded collar and pockets?"
Pet lady: That's my role in the Miami Herald newsroom. I've been here since 1989, during which time I've had eight dogs, a ring-necked parakeet, a chicken, and a lizard named Lance. At the moment, I've got four dogs, two step-dogs, and two cockatiels. A native New Yorker, I came here from Louisville, Ky. I'm a graduate of the University of Arizona, and had a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard in 1988. I have written 233 stories containing the word 'dog' in the past 17 years.
