Dr. Cynthia Otto is the winner of a Bustad award from the American Veterinary Medical Association as Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year, for her work as head of the Penn Vet Working Dog Center at the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school, where they focus on the research and development of breeding, raising and training working dogs, from military protection and guard work to detection dogs — be it bombs or bed bugs; Ed Jamison, director of Dallas Animal Services, talks about the challenges of running an “open admission” county shelter that has the 5th highest intake numbers of any shelter in the country — he and Tracie talk about the brilliance of Dogs Playing for Life [], which is the National Beneficiary of the NY Dog Film Festival, and describes his own initial reluctance about Aimee Sadler’s vision of a different way to make life better for shelter dogs, and how he now passionately embraces the idea of dogs in playgroups; Belinda Jones talks about her canine travel adventure book BODIE ON THE ROAD: TRAVELS WITH A RESCUE PUP IN THE DOGGED PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS and her blog, Bodie on the Road.
