We have all heard the saying that dog’s are man’s best friend. Anyone who has or has owned a dog will tell you that dogs have changed our lives for the better. They are great companions. They love to play. They are always happy to see us. But today’s question is simple: Did you know that they could save our lives as well? Now I am not talking about Lassie swimming into the pond to pull Billy out by the shirt collar though that could definitely be included here. I am talking about beloved pets who have supported their owners through periods of ill health and other crises—with miraculous results. This is more along the lines of the seeing eye dogs I think that is the most common dogs to our listeners. But it goes well beyond seeing eye dogs. The book we will be discussing today is called “Paws & Effect: The Healing Power of Dogs.” The book is written by a journalist, writer and television news producer who has been involved with purebred dogs for 30 years. She is a judge of Hound and Working breeds. She's bred champion Whippets and Brussels Griffons and she's written four books about dogs. Please welcome to Your Life Matters Sharon Sakson.
