Edith Wharton, the dog lover

Edith Wharton had an "above average" obsession with her dogs. Her home in MA (The Mount) even contains a pet cemetery for her dearly departed pooches complete with headstones.

She was an animal activist, as well, especially so in an SPCA campaign to ensure the NYC streets were equipped with watering bowls.

Edith also was known to hire knitters for the sole purpose of making dog sweaters for her beloved fur babies.

I can connect with her love of dogs, but that's about as far as I can travel down the road with Ms. Wharton.

What about you?
