The Puppy Diaries: by Jill Abramson the First Woman Executive Editor of the New York Times

Jill Ellen Abramson (born March 19, 1954) is the executive editor of The New York Times. Assuming the position in September 2011, she became the first woman in this role in the paper’s 160-year history.

The Puppy Diaries: Raising a Dog Named Scout by Jill Abramson The First Woman Executive Editor of the New York Times.

New York Times Book Review Oct 14/2011

The Puppy Diaries seem conspicuously out of place when you glance at the other books that Jill Abramson has authored:

Obama: The Historic Journey by The New York Times, Jill Abramson and Bill Keller (Feb 16, 2009);
Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader’s Edition by Bill Keller, Jill Abramson and The New York Times (Feb 16, 2009);
Strange Justice: The Selling of Clarence Thomas by Jane Mayer and Jill Abramson (Oct 1, 1995);
Where They Are Now The story of the women of Harvard Law (1974) by Jill Abramson (Jan 21, 1986);
Feasibility of school-based spirometry screening for asthma. (Research Papers).: An article from: Journal of School Health by Jill M. Abramson, Peter Wollan, Marge Kurland and Barbara P. Yawn (Jul 31, 2005).

However it came at a time in her life when she was experiencing the empty nest syndrome; and she was recovering from a car accident and also the loss of her dearly loved dog Buddy.

The Puppy Diaries initially became an on-line column(New York Times:Home and Garden) chronicling the first years of Scout’s life.   The hugely successful column led to the publication of the  Puppy Diaries which coincided with Jill Abramson’s new appointment as the Executive Editor of the New York Times.

 The Puppy Diaries  provides useful dog raising tips.  Described by its publisher as “part memoir, part manual, part investigative report,” the book contains valuable information about adoption alternatives, puppy diet, and dog-training techniques.
