  1. I just wanted to let Jim and Rene know how much their story touched my husband and I. A little over a year ago our very healthy Brody became stricken with coonhound paralysis. His body bacame paralyzed literally overnight. We were lucky to find a knowledgeable vet locally with a holistic background who was familiar with this condition. (our regular vet had never heard of it and suggested putting our boy down, which was not an option to us).
    After 9 days in the hospital under intensive care, our boy made a miraculous recovery. It still took months of rehab. to get him back to his frisbee catching days, but it was worth every moment to see him jump and run again. It makes you realize what truly is important in life. And it is not material items, it is the quality time we spend with our loved ones, furry or otherwise. Thanks for the inspirational story. You are brave folks. I went through many tissues watching!

  2. I’m looking for the cartoon you mentioned about “dogs always know what time it is.” When I searched Google, it came up with a Twitter reference where you said “Just posted the Mutts comic mentioned in our recent PBS Nature program”, but I can’t get to that (posted on Twitter?). Have you posted it on this web site? It just sounds like a great reminder.
    Thanks, enjoyed the show.
