Museum celebrates poet's dog
The Republican, April 30

The animals might not understand her poetry, but dogs and their owners still came out for the first annual celebration of Emily Dickinson's dog Carlo. "This is the first time we've done a tribute to Carlo. Based on her letters and some of her poems we know Emily Dickinson loved Carlo very much," said Rachel Beanland, development and marketing manager for the Emily Dickinson Museum. The event was just a part of the two-day celebration of National Poetry Month called "A Little Madness in the Spring."
