Man's Best Friend, but Not This Woman's

Sunday, April 24, 2005; Page C02

NEW YORK AVE. NE, 1200 block, April 9. A woman surrendered a 1-year-old cocker spaniel to the D.C. shelter because, she said, it wanted too much affection. She said it followed her frequently and she would often step on it by accident. She said she was keeping another dog that "knows how to play by himself." The spaniel was made available for adoption.

Among cases handled recently by the Washington Humane Society.
