The Dog Diaries, or The Luxe Life
This is the Hamptons, where a dog can hit the beach early in the morning, grab a snack of organic, cage-free duck breast or maybe a coconut sorbet, stop at the spa for a facial, dash off to yoga class, hurry back to the beach for a quick dip and still make it to Yappy Hour, The New York Times reports.

As a "RESPONSIBLE" Pitbull owner. Those dogs were OBVIOUSLY abused. mean and that is why they acted with such aggression. My two Pitbulls are big babies, however, my female is very animal aggressive and doesn't like children, but, she would NEVER run through a screen to attack a child. Pitbulls just don't act with such haste unless they were trained to do so. It makes me sick. It really does.
