- Dale Picard created ECAD — Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities — in Dobbs Ferry, NY where he breeds service dogs, which are then trained by adolescents with emotional, behavioral, and learning problems who attend alternative schools on the campuses of five residential treatment centers, including Green Chimneys (Listen to Dog Talk Podcast from March 29, 2013 with Sam Ross of Green Chimneys).
- Sharon Peters talks about the way a seeing eye dog reached a man’s deepest recesses in her touching book TRUSTING CALVIN: How a Dog Helped Heal a Holocaust Survivor’s Heart.
- Helen Brown reads from her cheerful memoir about the Siamese cat who joined her family as she was diagnosed with breast cancer and just as her daughter left home for war-torn Sri Lanka to become a Buddhist nun in CATS & DAUGHTERS: They Don’t Always Come When Called.
