Dog Talk Show #336: Dr. Alice Villalobos (award-winning Official Oncologist of DOG TALK[R]), sharing end-of-life knowledge about pets and her principles and philosophies about euthanasia with human thanatologists, who are interested in aiding humans at the end of their lives; Lance Weller’s first book Wilderness is a sweeping and deeply moving epic about the Civil War, with a veteran and dog making their way afterwards; Allyson Halm from Westchester rescue Adopt-a-Dog (which participated in the Pepe Infiniti Fur-ever Home adoption event at Westchester Mall with Tracie) on true meaning of “no kill” in the shelter world and misplaced attitudes about it — and the growing for-profit trafficking in sickly dogs from the South, often bred purposely to be transported to the Northeast where unwitting adopters don’t realize they have become part of a new kind of scam.
