Owen the Softie

The New York Times profile of Judge/Justice Owens as a softie was not very convincing:

Her private life showed a softer side. She cherished her two Belgian sheep dogs and served on the board of Texas Hearing and Service Dogs, which trains unwanted dogs.

This is the best they could find?  I'm all for kindness to animals.  But--as my wife will tell you--I really resent people who can only connect with the other species. Unless they are autistic and can do no better.  See, e.g., An Anthropologist on Mars.
