Dog Talk #356 (1/18/2014)

Dog Talk (1/18/2014) #356: What was the recent story with the blind man who fell onto subway tracks and then got donations of $40,000 because he said he had to give away his guide dog? DOG TALK® listener Gil (who has been on the show before discussing his own guide dogs Evie and Satch), tries to explain the strange situation; Tracie’s chiropractor Ken describes how she steered him away from buying a puppy from an Arkansas puppy mill and instead hooked him up with a wonderful home Cockapoo breeder in Massachusetts; Cristine from Shady Lane is that Cockapoo breeder, and describes how she got involved in cockapoos and her ethical struggle with breeding vs. her support of rescuing animals.
