Jill Abramson: "The Puppy Diaries"

She's the first woman to be executive editor of The New York Times. She's a best-selling and award-winning author. And she's an unabashed dog lover. Jill Abramson on the joys and challenges of raising a puppy.

Jill Abramson is a self-described “tough-girl investigative journalist.” She’s reported for Time magazine and The Wall Street Journal, and served as Washington bureau chief of The New York Times. Last month, she became the Times first female executive editor. But there’s another side to Jill Abramson: she’s an unabashed dog lover. After adopting a new puppy two years ago, she started an online column about raising the high-spirited golden retriever named Scout. It covered such issues as adoption or rescue, raw diet or vegan, and which training techniques work best. Jill Abramson on her plans for The New York Times…and raising a puppy.
