Dog Talk #390 (10-04-2014)

Dog Talk (and Kitties, Too!)

Dog Talk (10-04-2014) #390: Dr. Amy Attas was the vet for Joan Rivers’ dogs for 25 years and is New York’s premier house call veterinarian with her practice City Pets — a pug lover herself from childhood, Dr. Amy talks about the benefits for the pets and the people of having the affordable luxury of having the vet come to them instead of the other way around; Nanci Yulco in New Jersey is the woman from Chin rescue who facilitated the adoption by Joan of her final dog, Teegan, a Japanese Chin found wandering the streets in Las Vegas before JC Care flew him to New York City; Brooke Borg is an estate planning attorney in Nevada, who specializes in advising pet owners how to protect their pets after they are gone — including things not immediately obvious, like not to mention any animal by name and not to leave money directly to the chosen caretaker, but perhaps to leave provision for them to live in your dwelling for the remainder of your pets’ lives.
