Segment 1 – 01:12 – 03:32

I’m starting a new segment, called Creature Feature, which will be remarkable, funny, or heartwarming short tales about animals. Here’s the first creature feature, “Sometimes, wishes come true in the funniest of ways.”

Segment 2 – 03:34 – 32:19

Do you feel like you get unconditional love from your dog? Do you ever wonder why it is that they do love us so much? Science is revealing now, how dogs are positively affected by us.  My guest today, is Dr. Clive Wynne, the director of the Canine Science Collaboratory at Arizona State University and the author of the book, “Dog is Love, Why and How Your Dog Loves You.” He’s here to tell you about some of the fabulous discoveries being made into the minds and hearts of dogs.

Segment 3 – 32:21 – 36:10

Have you ever seen your cat do this? Suddenly it starts running at top speed around the house, a somewhat crazed look on its face, leaping on and off furniture in its path, tearing up and down staircases, dashing around the rooms as if the very devil was chasing them?  This behavior is fairly common for inside cats, and there is a specific reason this happens. I’ll explain what it is and what to do so your cat does not get so crazed at times.
