    Pen Farthing - The Animal hero | A One Of The Family Podcast by Nicky Campbell

    On the latest episode of the double award winning podcast, Pen Farthing tells us what really happened in that dramatic animal rescue from Afghanistan. He addresses the claims, the counter-claims, the truth and the lies.

    “This was NEVER about pets over people”. The wonderful charity Nowzad was dedicated to saving dogs, cats and donkeys, giving them a better life and spreading the word on animal welfare but can that work ever continue? His brave, compassionate staff are safe after a dramatic journey through the mountains to Pakistan and then onto the UK but their hearts will always be back home, with the voiceless.

    Robbie movingly describes the dogs he loves and has loved. How they have enriched his life beyond measure. Life without them would be unimaginable. His home will always have a dog. Always.

Just brilliant!

Found this podcast in the days after we lost our amazing Vizsla Bob. Nicky and his guests provided much needed comfort, laughs and a reminder that it’s our dogs who show us how to live ... in the moment and with gratitude for every day. Please keep the episodes coming.

What a wonderful podcast, brilliantly put together and love the way Nicky involves the whole family. I have two mini schnauzers and adore them, they help me be me. Really hope Nicky will make more and perhaps interview Janetta Harvey at Schnauzerfest UK.
