10/29 – “Dogs with Old Man Faces” and then “Old Dog Haven: Every Old Dog Has A Story”

Today’s theme: OLD DOGS!!!

Talking with two authors today.  First, Tom Cohen, author of “Dogs with Old Man Faces”, celebrating dogs with ‘old souls’. Daytime Emmy Award winner, Tom Cohen, the executive producer of “Cash Cab,” was inspired to write Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines, from his own dog, Piper, a 6-year-old Shih Tzu with an old man face. She has a specific face he likes to call ‘Peter Falk’ Face, because she somehow makes it look like his – kind of a smirk and an expression of, ‘I’ve been around the block’, says Cohen. He started noticing that kind of dog face everywhere he went. So he grabbed his camera and started snapping shots wherever he saw a dog that was channeling his inner old man face: on the streets of Manhattan, sitting outside a Starbucks, at the dog park – everywhere. Sadly, Piper didn’t make the book. There were just too many other dogs with amazing faces, the competition was stiff.

Cohen hopes, Dogs with Old Man Faces will inspire an appreciation of older dogs. Look into an older dog’s eyes and they look back at you with what is instantly recognizable as the equivalent of decades of experience. Please let me know if you would like to schedule a time to chat with Tom Cohen about this book and these heartwarming photos with humorous captions, sure to make anyone laugh and love their old dogs even more.

Then host, Julie Forbes talks with Ardeth De Vries, President of the Board of Old Dog Haven, a non-profit that is a large network of foster homes that gets old dogs out of shelters!  www.olddoghaven.org

D Cups Saving Teacups Founder Kim Sill – Puppy Mills and Pet Stores. They ROCK!

Kim Sill has it goin’ on in California with her organization D Cups Saving Teacups.  She’s actually gotten some of the area pet stores to start working with shelters, rather than sourcing their dogs from puppy mills… YUCK!  Puppy mills keep their breeding dogs in horrible conditions and also tend to breed dogs with genetic and health problems.  Bad news.

Listen to my informative and inspiring interview with Kim Sill and enjoy being educated and entertained!

9/10/14 – Dogs, Women and Leadership

On today’s show, I share my experience coaching people, mostly women, over the last twelve years in how to effectively communicate with their dogs using their bodies and “non-verbal communication”.

A lot comes up within this context, because asking a woman to be more assertive or to have bigger energy and take up more space, isn’t something to take for granted, given our history and cultural conditioning.

Could learning how to communicate like a dog give women access to freedom and healing?

Listen to today’s show and let me know what you think.  host@dogradioshow.com
