Bill Geist gets a dog
A self-avowed “cat person,” CBS reporter Bill Geist recently got his first dog — a shelter pooch from South Carolina that was delivered to him at a New Jersey Turnpike rest area.
Geist, in this report, documents that delivery and his early days in the strange new world (to him) of being a dog person.
He captures pretty much everything — the quest for a dog online, naming her (Daphne), socializing at the dog park, his first poop scoopage, and availing himself of the many goods and services the dog owner soons becomes familiar with — from accessories to grooming to obedience training.
Giest says he had no idea how much of a challenge raising a puppy would be: “You practically have to quit your job.”
