Jane Paley Price wrote a children’s book, “Hooper Finds a Family: A Hurricane Katrina Dog’s Survival Tale,” about her yellow Lab. Hooper was feted at Yankee Stadium in July during a book party thrown by team president Randy Levine and his wife, Mindy. Jane is a huge Yankees fan, and Hooper’s party attire included a Yankees collar. Jane and her husband, Larry, found Hooper in Lake Charles, La., through
Labs4Rescue. “It was love at first sight,” she told USA Today in a story about the book. They nursed the sickly Lab back to health, and now he is “the most spoiled dog in the world,” Jane says.
