Listen to our Pet Show podcast! We talk about National Work Like a Dog Day, which is Friday, Aug. 1. The Working Group is made up of smart, strong dogs, according to the American Kennel Club. The boxer, the most popular of the Working Group, is the sixth most popular breed, according to AKC. We decided that boxers have two main jobs: boxing and slobbering.
We also discussed the latest animal news:
- - Knut is having difficulty adjusting to polar bear life.
- - Someone stole a shark. Yes, a shark.
- - Authorities are still investigating the mauling death of a 2-month-old in Tulsa.
We had a special guest on our show this week. Instead of an expert visiting us in the studio, we took the studio to the expert! We visited the Companion Animal Parasite Council Road Show in Bricktown. We visited with Dr. Mike Paul, executive director of the Companion Animal Parasite Council, and Dr. Dwight Bowman, a parasitologist with the CAPC. It’s fascinating (if not gross) info.
