I hate to admit it, but I am a podcast geek. Every day (well almost every day) when I hop onto the treadmill at the gym, I have my earbuds in place and turn up the volume to my favorite podcasts. It is literally 30 minutes of heaven. Most of the time I am tuned into shows about how to be a better blogger, but today I listened to my own voice because I was the guest speaker on the Happy, Healthy Pets podcast.
This is my subtle way of saying there is a program about Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog that I hope you check out.
Happy, Healthy Pets is a weekly show hosted by Mark C. Robinson, who is the founder of Walkin’ Pets at HandicappedPets.com. Each program is dedicated to advances in the health and well-being of disabled dogs and cats. The topics range from: Canine Rehabilitation, Fitting Your Dog For A Wheelchair, Rescue Groups For Hard To Adopt Dogs and lots more.
Early in the series, pet mom extraordinaire and supporter of this blog, Tracey Fowler, was featured for her dedication to the many paralyzed dogs she has adopted.
What we covered in the interview
Mark and his co-host Lisa Murray wanted to know all about my paralyzed dog Sophie and how our experience turned into a fulltime blogging project for me. If you don’t know our story, the podcast will fill you in about Sophie’s illness and how my family adjusted to life with a paralyzed dog.
The interview also talks about why I started Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog, the goals I hope to achieve and what I hope the future holds for disabled pets.

I hope you enjoy the program. (My part starts about 15 minutes into the show) Click the words below:
I have been a fan of Walkin’ Pets at HandicappedPets.com since Sophie and I started on our journey in 2008. It was one of the first resources I found that sells a wide variety of products for paralyzed dogs and cats. Our wheelchair came from Walkin’ Pets and we used their harnesses and boots as well. I like the company so much that I am an affiliate member.
I want to thank Mark and Lisa for having me on their podcast. I appreciate the opportunity to share my story.
