Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (04-25-2021) #724: Featuring Martha Teichner, Georgia Dodson, and Rebecca. Martha Teichner, one of the star correspondents of CBS Sunday Morning, discusses her memoir When Harry Met Minnie about bringing together her Bull Terrier, Minnie, and Harry, the aged Bull Terrier owned by a woman planning ahead for her own death; Georgia Dodson, the VP & Adoption Coordinator for Gray Face Acres Senior Dog Rescue in Virginia, talks about the challenges and joys of looking after aging pooches; Tracie talks to Rebecca about the importance of properly documenting your pet’s microchip number [and registering it for free and reliably at Michelson Found Animals] because Rebecca discovered she didn’t have the right microchip number for her little puppy Eliot, who ran away and was lost in the Adirondack woods for three days.
