The $50,000 Dog
by Charles Steinhacker
Dogga Brown: The $50,000 Dog is the story of the author's ill-fated entrance into the dog market back in 1966 when he purchased for a two-dollar contribution to the Humane Society one genuine brown dog. The purchase price for this animal turned out to be one of the most deceptive deposits ever put down on anything in the history of financial transactions. By the time the dog "crossed over" in 1981, her psychotic behavior had cost the writer over $57,000 and driven him into long-term psychotherapy with the eminent but highly eccentric Dr. Harry Frale.
