When I first introduced the idea in a meeting almost 2 years ago we all thought it was a good idea, but seriously, how could we even develop a show about pets when there are so many others doing it so well for so long? Well, after many discussions and meetings about the My Buddy Butch Brand we decided to move forward with the show giving it one year to see if we could raise enough interest on a regional basis to continue. Much to our suprise and delight within a 3 month period, the enormous response from coast to coast (and in many countries)Â that we received, told us that we were a needed and welcomed addition to the “pet broadcasting” community. Trying toÂ help as many pets and people as we could in addition to entertaining them with my “learning curve” of taking care of Butch has proven to be a worthwhile experience for all who have been involved. Most importantly theÂ quickly growingÂ list ofÂ fans and subscribersÂ of the show (and Butch of course) have spoken and have learned much about themselves as pet owners and about taking care of their pet just a little better. We have had more than a few animal adoptions take place because of our “Pet Rescue of the Week” segment and have relayed important information on our “Vet Topic of the Week” segment. All I can say is “Thank You” to all that have helped us, been a guest on the show, or adopted an animal from a rescue org. We love doing the show and although weÂ sometimes have our problems, try to get the info out to you each week! All the best to each and every one of you and “stay tuned” as we will be introducing additional My Buddy Butch material to you in the next year, some of which will be coming to a TV near you!
Sharon Sakson joined us briefly, but unfortunately we were not able to talk with her as long as we would have liked. With nasty storms rolling through New Jersey Sharon was experiencing some power problems. We did however have a chance to talk to her a little later in the show giving us a taste of her book Paws & Effect: The Healing Power of DogsI’m am currently reading this book and loving every page. I believe that this will be my first review on the site. It is OUTSTANDING and Sharon has set the bar for aspiring writers like myself with this moving “tale!” Sharon will be joining us again next week to finish our discussion on this great book!
