Bruce Cameron Discusses A Dog’s Promise

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (12-21-2019) #654: Featuring Bruce Cameron, Katherine Altizer, and Elaine Rosen. Beloved author Bruce Cameron continues his series with the new novel, A DOG’S PROMISE, which shows us how real love never dies (at least not between us and our dogs); Katherine Altizer is writing her PhD dissertation at the Indiana University Department of Musicology on animals and music, and the way having dogs in an audience changes the experience (as she found being in the audience of the Dog Film Festival did when it came to Bloomington, Indiana); Elaine Rosen talks about her non-profit Dog Lodge Sanctuary in Texas that provides a permanent home for senior and/or special needs dogs considered “unadoptable” because of advanced age or chronic illness or physical disabilities.
