David Carr Loses Track of Glenn Greenwald’s Dogs

The many pet dogs tended to in Rio de Janeiro by Glenn Greenwald and husband David get a fair bit of ink in David Carr‘s colorful interview piece. However, when dealing with a permanent brood of 12 canines – augmented at the time of the New York Times columnist’s visit by an additional, thirteenth interloper – it can get hairy.

From the correction at the bottom of the article:

Correction: August 3, 2014
…The column also misstated the name of one of Glenn Greenwald’s many dogs. The dog’s name is Sheeva, not Sheila.

Presciently, Carr wrote in the article that he “lost track of the [dog] names.” However, when he suggested to Greenwald that the dogs have the First Look Media truth-seeker “nearing cat-lady status,” the Pulitzer Prize winner politely disagreed.
