    my personal address is dogshowaddict with the gmail service. I have looked all over the place, but haven’t been able to find somewhere that has a link to the entire episode of Who Let The Dogs Out from this morning streamed, and I would like to send it to my low tech omther, who I know missed it. But I marched in the Tournament of Roses Parade when I was 16, and my brother now lives and works in Pasadena and his birthday is on New Years Day, so that parade is interesting to our family. I loved watching the auditions for the float, especially the chihauhau!!!  I was very upset to hear that the teenaged Patrick hasn’t got enough money for rehab, and that says to me that he was hit by an uninsured driver with no asets, or he had a shitty lawyer. I’m very afraid for his future.
    Again, if you could help me make it possible for Mom to see this morning’s show’s episode, that would be SO nice. Or  you can find me as yellowrose45 on the social networking site known by those two initials.  Thank you.  Julia Perry in Huntsville, AL

    • Hi Julia, Let me check with Natural Balance…I’ll email them and see if they’ve got it available to view online. More soon! Paris
