“In Dog, Inc. John Woestendiek deliciously lampoons the unholy combination of consumer culture, emotional indulgence and scientific chicanery that lie at the heart of the cloning movement, and yet somehow, in the process, he reminds us why we love our pets so much to begin with.”
Jim Gorant, author of The Lost Dogs, Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption

About John Woestendiek

Pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter John Woestendiek writes and produces the popular dog website “ohmidog!” He's a 35-year veteran of newspapers, most recently the Baltimore Sun, which he left in 2008 to research and write Dog, Inc.

He has also worked for the Arizona Daily Star, Lexington Herald-Leader, Charlotte Observer, and Philadelphia Inquirer, where he won a Pulitzer in 1987 for a series of articles that helped overturn the murder conviction of an innocent 18-year-old man sentenced to life in prison.

In addition to writing about prisons and mental institutions, Woestendiek reported on troubled, poor and otherwise at risk children, served as a national correspondent covering the western states, a roaming national columnist and as a humor columnist.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he was inducted into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame in 2003. He is a former Knight Fellow at Stanford University, and served as the T. Anthony Pollner Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Montana School of Journalism in 2007.

Woestendiek, 58, and his shelter dog, Ace, currently live and blog in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
