Show #68 – Dr. Nancy Kay Author of “Speaking for Spot” – Author Connie Gotsch on her novel Belle’s Star – Stacy Thomas of Chicago Canine Rescue is our Rescue of the Week – Callie Novak of Dynamite – Dr. Patrick Mahaney With The Weekly Vet Topic “Pet Safety in your Bedroom”…really?

Speaking  for Spot - Dr. Nancy Kay DVM

Dr. Nancy Kay

Dr. Nancy KayDr. Nancy Kay is a great freind of the My Buddy Butch Show and she has been with us in the past for a few shows sharing tips from her book “Speaking for Spot.” This is a great one stop shop for information on how to take the best care of your dog and how to work with your Veterinarian for your pets benenfit. I keep this book handy and it has answered many questions I had while taking care of Butch in the last year! Great for new and expert dog parents alike. Dr. Nancy joined us to talk about her first hand experience with puppy mills. Often a sad ending and heartbreaking experience, as a Veterinarian, Dr. Nancy sees too much of this going on and she shares a story of a sweet little Boston Terrier that had to be put down because of a genetic defect that just could not be repaired by surgery. If you are planning on a new furry addition to your family you should listen to this conversation!

Award-winning author Connie Gotsch’s  novel, Belle’s Star is written from a dog’s point of view. The story follows Belle, a young dog who has never met a kind human, as she is rescued by a young girl named Darcy. Belle is terrified, but other dogs and a cat teach Belle about trust, and she learns how to face the painful issues around her.
It was great to speak with Connie about this book because it centers around a theme that can help kids deal with abuse and perhaps teach them to trust and that not all people are cruel. It also can teach them how to care for another person and even a pet!





Adopt a worthy canine! They have puppies too!

Adopt a worthy canine! They have puppies too!

Stacy Thomas Director of PR for the Chicago Canine Rescue dropped in to talk about their organization. Once you get started it takes a lot of heart to keep up the great work and they have done just that!. Beginning in 2001 they have grown to have their own facility with the help from many volunteers and donations. If you are around the Chicagoland area please look them and if you are not ready to adopt see if you can volunteer to help out and keep off some of the Winter pounds! You can always help find homes for these deserving pets. Check out their web site!

Vet to the Stars!

Vet to the Stars!

This week Dr. Patrick talks to us about “Bedroom Safety for your pet!” Really… what possibly could be a problem in my bedroom? Well, Dr. Patrick has seen many instances where things laying around the bedroom have ended up in pet’s stomach. Listen in on what he has pulled out of a pet stomach you won’t believe it!

Also last week Dr. Patrick gave us a first hand look at a pet that suffered burns and how he is treating it. He has provided pictures but be warned they are graphic. Budda is a sweet little French Bulldog that suffered burns and is now going through treatments to help him heal. I wanted to keep this up again this week because it is important to keep your pet from under your car…and this is one of many reasons why!

SENIORS FOR LIVING - I had the honor of being quoted in an article on this great web site for senior citizens. I had a very nice conversation with Marianne Thomas about how having a pet can help seniors with every day life. I have seen the effect having a dog has had on my 86 year old father, so I can speak first hand on the benefits for seniors that adding this new “family member” can bring to their lives! See the article “25 Reasons Why A Pet Helps You Stay Young At Heart.”
