  • Beautiful Unbroken “Beautiful Unbroken: One Nurse’s Life” by Mary Jane Nealon

    People call you a “Dog Person” and you kind of like that.

    It’s no reflection on you, personally, of course. That moniker just says to the world that you have a love for anything canine, that you probably have a few pups of your own, and that you’ve never known a dog you didn’t like.
