Dog Talk #409 (02-21-2015): Switzerland petition against dog/cat meat consumption

Dog Talk (02-21-2015) #409: Tomi Tomek calls from Switzerland where she is fighting against the legal consumption of dogs and cats, especially in the German Swiss mountain areas. Her group SOS CHATS is trying to stop the dog and cat meat trade in Switzerland and asks Americans to sign their petition; Laurence Alexander is a young director pursuing an MFA in Science and Natural History Film making from Montana State University in Bozeman, who submitted her documentary “989 Miles Home” to the Dog Film Festival, where Tracie has already assured it a place; Russell Friedman is the co-author of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss, and offers invaluable support to guide us through the often stunning grief that can be overwhelming when we lose a pet.
