Happy Anniversary from DOG TALK (and Kitties, Too!) as it reaches its 500th show!

Last weekend the 500th show of Dog Talk (and Kitties Too!) aired on Peconic Public Broadcasting — over 9 years of consecutive weekly shows celebrating the human-animal bond in all its permutations.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to interview authors, artists and experts on far-ranging topics, from advice and health information, to bestselling books, and explorations into the natural world.

I’ve been told that my shows inspire, entertain and educate but I want to give thanks to the guests I interview who do the same for me.

Thank you to all of my listeners and sponsors, which include Weruva, Dr. Elsey’s Precious CatNordic Naturals, and Halo, Purely for Pets, which have all been with me for such a long part of this epic run on the radio. I couldn’t do what I do without the additional support of Best Pet RX,  SPOT PlatinumVacciCheck, K9 Advantix II and Ollie. Thank you also to my NPR station Peconic Public Broadcasting (formerly WLIU) and Dr. Wally Smith, the NPR legend himself, who gave me my start and nurtured me and the show. Thanks also to the “smallest NPR station in the nation,” Robinhood Radio in Litchfield County and the Berkshires, which believes in the value of my show exploring the relationship between people and their pets.

Traveling this past year with the New York Dog Film Festival I had the opportunity to meet many of my listeners and supporters, and it has been a humbling and exhilarating experience.

I look forward to bringing you many more radio shows, and to seeing you in person somewhere as the Festival heads into its 2nd year on the road!

Love from my pack to yours,
