Dog Talk #345 Tracie Hotchner (11-02-2013)

Dog Talk #345: Tracie is mad about Jincy Willett’s social satire Amy Falls Down in which her Bassett Hound sets in motion a huge sea change for a reclusive writer; Corey Hudson from Canine Companion for Independence (cci.org) talks about the moral bankruptcy of people using fake service dog vests so they can take their doggies along with them, making life much harder for people with a true need for their service animals; Sharon Luttrell talks about her book Weekends with Daisy and sharing the raising of a service dog with the prisoner who trained her behind bars during the week.
