I really love listening to this show yet wonder why theres not more calls about the Pitbull breeds, I have 2 and seems like its a show more for cat questions. But, always interesting

Among serious animal discussions, this is the best!

I enjoy (and learn something new) from nearly every episode.

That's why I think this is among the best. But, episode 316 with the discussion of the dog about to die in the arms of... hey, I am nominating podcast 316 as the most touching animal story of the year at Surf Review & Report magazine.

Yeah, I cried while watching (and reading) Old Yeller, but that was done a long time ago and, besides, it was fiction. The discussion in episode 316 is a true story that will force any human to tears!

Keep up the great work - Bill Anderson.
