Show #75 – Crufts Dog Show in the UK, Jane Miller Author of “Healing Companions” – Dr. Patrick Mahaney “Vet to the Stars” on Buddah the French Bulldog and a Hawk attack on the Vet Topic of the Week.

OK, it was great to get back to the show again. I hate it when things pop up and prevent us from doing what love to do and that is talk to interesting people and bring you a few tid bits of information each week. Our rescue of the week interview ran into a last minute problem (it happens…) and could not call in but we will resume again next week. On with the show!

I know that I joke around about Ohio reagrding our weather a lot but living here I have a unique perspective. Ohio is one of the great states and I cannot deny this, which is why I was not surprised to find out that Jane Miller, author of Healing Companions is right here in my neck of the woods. There are many great, nationally known people (and Dogs) living right here in Ohio and Jane proves this point. The remarkeable work that she is doing for those suffering from PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and others with psychological issues is truly amazing. She will be the first to tell you that the dogs she has introduced into the lives of people, some of who are veterans, are the true “healers.” The things that Jane has trained these service dogs to do is remarkable and she talks with me about this and her experience in this field of work. She has many speaking engagements and you can see all of them at her website Healing Companions!


crufts the Largest Dog Show in the world!

With our coverage of the best dogs shows in the world, I thought it would be interesting to see what Crufts Dog Show that our freinds in the UK held March 11th – 13th has to offer. They have a great website and have many things happening for the show. Listen in to hear who won and check out the web site for more information and highlights of the show. Perhaps if we have a few more sheckles in the jar next year we can take a trip “Across the Pond” to check it out! There are some specific differences between thier show and our shows here in the United States!



Vet to the Stars!

Vet to the Stars!

Dr. Patrick joins us to talk about the treatments that he has been giving “Buddah” the cute little French Bulldog that was severely burned while trying to crawn underneath a car and got caught underneath a scalding hot exhaust system! Buddah is doing well and is responding nicely to treatment. You can also check out the series of articles that Dr. Patrick is posting on the Examiner Site. He also talks about a recent Hawk attack on a little 8 pound dog and reminds us to stay alert to help protect our buddies!

PET FRIENDLY HOTELS FROWN ON DOG POOP (Hariet Baskas – Really? They must be kidding. I thought dodging pet poop was part of the experience, part of the essence, and yes part of the BONDING process that makes hotels love it when we bring our pets! I don’t mean BONDING poop to the bottom of my shoes! I’m with you Hariet, if people can’t follow the rules of a hotel STAY HOME! It’s the few that make it bad for the rest of us.

CALIFORNIA PONDERING ‘ANIMAL ABUSERS REGISTRY’  – As reported in an article by Alison Stateman in LA on Time’s blog, California State representative Dean Flores introduced this bill in late February but during a time where not only the state has financial trouble but pet owners are also struggling, can it pass when it needs to be funded by tax dollars? Great idea for the registry…let’s watch this one!

FLORIDA TO ALLOW BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION - (From Pet Product news intl.)Here we go again. I’m getting really sick of talking about this… Senate Bill 1276, sponsored by Sen. Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville, allows “any local government [to place] further restrictions or additional requirements on owners of dangerous dogs.” My Buddy Butch is a very dangerous and deadly dog… to squirrels….

PET FOOD RECALL UPDATED MARCH 9, 2010 - Nature’s Variety announced a voluntary recall over possible Salmonella contamination. Read about this on the FDA’s Web Site!

SAAVY EXPLORER ARTICLE - FLYING WITH PETS on the Saavy Explorer about an experience my Dad had while traveling with Buttons to Florida.

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.” 

Date Wanted – Must Love Dogs and Butch! - I was included in an article about Dogs and Dating! Two of my favorite subjects! Dating is tough enough for me with my schedule but now any girl I meet has to pass Butch’s test before we can go on a date!
