This historical show happens only every 5 years! Don't miss it!

Mr. Wayne Ferguson has been involved with dog shows for over 40 years. It would be difficult to find someone that knows more than he does about the stucture of a dog show and even dogs themselves. Wayne Fergusen is the President and Show Chair of the Morris & Essex Kennel Club Dog Show which is steeped in history. Dating back to the 1920’s this prestigious show was started by an individual from one of America’s richest and most famous families, the Rockefellers. Listen to our show this week as Wayne talks about how he discovered the memorabilia that led him to revive this historical dog show. Since this show happens only every 5 years we are going to be covering it every couple of months or so to bring you updates in anticipation of the big event on October 7, 2010…and we will be there also! Special thanks to Wayne for joining us and we look forward to having him on a gain over the coming months! Check out their web site also to view some amazing pictures of shows from the past!



Trainer and Animal Expert Joel Silverman

Trainer and Animal Expert Joel Silverman

Joel used to be a Killer Whale trainer at Sea World and he was kind enough to join us this week to talk a little bit about his experience with these enormous sea mammels and the tragic death of a trainer at Sea world of Orlando this week. These animals are not to be taken lightly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the trainer that parished.

Bringing Animals Out of Crisis and into Care!

Bringing Animals Out of Crisis and into Care!

Nicole Forsyth CEO of United Animal Nations joins us from Sacramento California to talk about thier efforts in helping to save animals of all types around the country. Founded in 1987, United Animal Nations (UAN) focuses on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the bond between people and animals through a variety of programs, including emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education.  Learn more from my interview with Nicole on this week’s show.



Vet to the Stars!

 This week Dr. Patrick talks about the Pet sales ban in West Hollywood that prohibits the sale of pets in Pet Stores in that area. Helping to curb the spread of “Puppy Mill” dogs that are often not well taken care of not to mention sick which can end up costing the new owners hundreds if not thousands of dollars to take care of in addition to the heartbreak of watching the animal suffer and in many cases die or have to be euthanized. Perhaps this type of legislation will be sweeping the country before you know it forcing people to seek out rescue animals as well as reputable breeders for a happy healthy new family member.

Have pet, will travel
Pet owners are not parting with their animals when they travel, but are instead taking them along. APPA says about 62% of U.S. households have pets, and companies such as bringfido.com, a pet-travel Web site, are finding that traveling with pets is becoming more common. The Daily Reflector (Greenville, N.C.) (2/20)

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!
