Mark Semos (Seal Team, CBS) Discusses No Ordinary Dog

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (06-06-2020) #678: Featuring Mark Semos, Michael Levitt, and Jennifer Conrad. Mark Semos (a former US Navy SEAL and GWOT veteran, who writes and produces the television show “SEAL Team” on CBS) talks about the powerful new book NO ORDINARY DOG which chronicles the feats of Cairo, the Military Working Dog, and his handler Will Chesney, who took part in the raid on Osama Bin Laden; Michael Levitt produced the heart-warming PSA about what it’s like for people or dogs to get old for the Grey Muzzle Organization (which you can see on their home page) featuring Carol Burnett, Carl Reiner, Lily Tomlin, & Bob Newhart; Dr. Jennifer Conrad from The Paw Project returns to report that sadly the AVMA has gone backward on their stance against declawing—but on the bright side, VCA Hospitals and Banfield have both banned the cruel procedure.
