I have had this podcast downloaded and ready to listen to for months - but time being what it is and all the mind bending news in the past couple years taking up my podcast time, I just haven’t gotten to this one. So today I felt like listening to something a little different and I finally got to “Working Dogs”. I listened to the episodes about stress in dogs and therapy dogs. Both were very interesting. I love Marcie’s voice which is always important. Anyway, if you like or love dogs, give this a try.

Thanks
