Hour 1

Author Mark Raab joins Jeff to talk about his book “HOMER.” Mark talks about the book where Cliff Thompson discovers his puppy, Homer, has a gift. He can talk. A lot. When Beth and 10 year old son Kevin move in down the street, Homer thinks he may have found what he’s been wanting for so long–the love of a child. But did he? Great book and benefits the OSCAR Rescue where Mark has volunteered and has actually adopted dogs there!Cassie of O.S.C.A.R. in Sparta NJ Joins us for the rescue of the week segment. News and Announcements : OSU veterinary grief help hot-line discontinued May 31st. ASPCA has one if you need to talk to someone.

Hour 2

When do you know it’s time to take your Cat or Dog to the Emergency room? Jeff goes over a list sent to him by Dr. Edward Cooper who is the head of the OSU Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care facility, One of the Best in the country. ABC News ran a segment last week about New Jersey and many other states cracking down on distracted drivers with pets in their laps and roaming unrestrained in the cars! Listen in to see if your state is next to levy up to $1000 per infraction for this. There are inexpensive car harnesses available at the ASPCA web site and many others including local pet stores! Also in New Jersey a lawsuit has been filed for salmonella poisoning of an 8 month old baby allegedly caused by the recalled dry dog food that we discussed a few weeks ago! Here it comes!

Hour 1

Have you ever wanted to know what exactly an “Animal Communicator” actually does? Well, Paula Brown, a great friend of the show gave Jeff the gift of a communication with Butch and Jeff captured the conversation. Paula is a much sought after animal communicator and you may have seen her on TLC during the episode with the woman who wanted to clone her dog. Whether you believe it or you are a skeptic of the after life we think you will find this interesting and entertaining. Jeff gves his thoughts and talks about some of the “spooky” things that Paula told him. Interesting if nothing else!

Hour 2

Jeff is currently filming some of the footage for the My Buddy Butch TV Show! He had the opportunity to get out and around to a few pet events and was even chosen to judge one of them. As he was looking around he saw many of the cardinal rules of pet parenting being broken with regard to the heat so he wants to take some time for reminding you about hot day hazards for cats and dogs. Also, Jeff discusses “I’ll Have Another’s” Success by winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness while wearing nasal strips…yes Nasal Strips almost like the ones you wear to keep from snoring!  Well, guess what he is not going to be able to wear those in the Belmont race on June 9th in New York…Jeff has serious doubts this horse will finish first without them on the longest of the three races. News and announcements…feral cats with fleas are spreading Typhus and a child has already contracted it. Be careful with your pets during flea season because they can harm your whole family!

Hour 1

“FISH TANK KINGS” is Nat Geo Wild’s latest interesting series about a company called “Living Color” based out of Ft. Lauderdale Florida that actually builds custom fish tanks around the country. Well, they don’t actually build them all the way ”AROUND THE COUNTRY.” There are already fish tanks around the country they’re called “OCEANS!” This show has been getting a lot of Buzz the last few weeks and Jeff has Jose Blanko stopping by to talk about some of the work they have been doing getting ready for this. One interesting project was the Florida Marlins baseball team Aquarium built right into the backstop behind home plate….yes the backstop! Listen in as Jeff finds out about some of the other interesting projects they have done and how to get young people started in the hobby of fish aquariums. Also, Jeff talks in depth about the voluntary Diamond Pet Food Recall, the brands affected and gives you some tips on how to stay safe and actually kill salmonella bacteria that may be in your and your pet’s food.

Hour 2

Getting back into the swing of things and catching up with all of the My Buddy Butch regulars Jeff talks with Certified Animal Behavior consultant Darlene Arden. Darlene’s latest book ” The Complete Cat’s Meow” has won another award and rightly so. YEARS of research and personal experience went into the writing of this book on the care of Felines of all ages, and Darlene shares with us some of the information to help you help your cat. Darlene stays with Jeff the entire hour and they trade opinions on the $60,000 custoday battle going on for a dog between a divorced couple…It’s a real “He said She said” for the pet world! Don’t forget the law looks at your pet like a car, or a stereo, are things changing?

Hour 1

This week - Butch Passed away on May 1st. Jeff is now flying solo for the time being and he talks about what it was like caring for Butch during this difficult period and the responsibility that we pet owners must have if we are to do the best we can. After all, If the rolls were reversed and it was possible for Butch to care for Jeff in this situation…we have no doubt that he would do everything that he could….just like we should do everything that we can to help our pets when they are sick or coming to the end of their truly short lives!

Hour 2 – Jeff Continues the discussion and talks about the future of the My Buddy Butch Show without our namesake and reason for being ”Butch” and how things will go on. He introduces the TV show and talks about how Butch’s brother “Bosco” will be filling in for Butch until “Junior” comes along. “Bosco” is the anti-Butch! HA! He is the exact opposite of Butch and maybe that’s why they loved each other so much. They were best buddies and never fought. Bosco (and mom Buttons) is very sad without Butch around. Jeff’s  second book has now been shelved in favor of another book discussing these current issues with Butch and what Jeff did and perhaps might have done differently if given the chance. So here we go again…Jeff will be training a new puppy! Taking us through the entire process of Picking a new partner for the show and TV show, Training this little guy how to follow in KING BUTCH’s paw steps and hopefully live a LONG HEALTHY life! In the mean time keep a look out for Butch’s Buddy of the week! Also Jeff wants to mention the Recall on Diamond Pet Food for Salmonella…of course…
