Pets: Della
 Courtesy of Sunset editor-at-large Peter Fish


Della is a lab mix, a rescue dog who came into our family when she was 4.
She is now 11. She's a great advertisement for rescue dogs because she's a fine dog.

Here she poses as Kim Novak in “Vertigo” in front of the Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco.

She's the world's best car traveler, content to sit peacefully in the backseat looking around at the world whizzing by her. Her favorite activities are walks on the beach, walks in the park, lying on the bed with us, and eating.

Favorite foods include anything containing peanut butter, but pretty much all foods are Della's favorite foods. 

She tolerates wearing costumes and dancing with me while I sing Rick James' Superfreak. ― Peter Fish
