    Front page of the NYT site has a "The Puppy Diaries" teaser and photo of a dog.

    Here's the link to the reader-submitted photos:

    How sad.

    Those weren't the puppies I was expecting to see.

    I understand what you mean by the subject line of this thread.

    Having said that, by incorporating a little more information instead of just making it akin to a simple photo gallery, this "puppy section" actually could be put to good use...if the NYT (or any other paper, for that matter) wanted to do that.

    Instead of readers' dogs, the section ought to be offered to and used by animal shelters to publicize prospective pets, and how to match up with them, with there being featured ones, say, each week.

    Same concept, with a twist of public service that actually would be useful and helpful.
