Hi there! It’s Tracie Hotchner, author of Dogster’s Daily Dog Tips as well as “The Dog Bible” and “Your Dog’s Best Friend” from the radio show DOG TALK(R). Today I have really good tip for you: Set aside this Saturday night October 11th at 8 PM (replayed Sunday at 7 PM) for a dog-lover’s dream TV show.
I just learned about this very cool new canine TV show on Animal Planet, DOGS 101, that should NOT be a well-kept secret. [I found out about it because the producers interviewed me as a cat expert for the last two episodes which are called CATS 101.] It’s all about different dog breeds, with lots of interviews with a variety of canine experts mixed in with being able to see a half dozen breeds up close and personal every week.Here are the notes for this week’s show:
World Premiere Saturday, October 11, 8-9 PM (ET/PT)
Can the poodle actually read? Is the French bulldog the loudest snorer? Did John Wayne’s Airedale give him his nickname? Do labs swim faster than ducks? And is the Chihuahua actually related to a fox? These questions and more will be answered on this episode of DOGS 101, the series that celebrates man’s best friend. Learn the history and unique traits of the French bulldog, the Airedale, the Labrador, the Chihuahua and the poodle. Prepare to be amazed as these breeds live out their legacies as heroes, healers, friends and brainiacs. You’ll never look at your pooch the same way again.
Check it out and please let me know what you think in the comments. I’ll get back to you at the end of next week so you’ll know if YOUR favorite breed is going to be highlighted then.
