Bridging Species: Thoughts and Tales About Our Lives with Dogs

Robyn M Fritz

Show Description:
Are your dogs and cats family members, not just pets? Then you're bridging species and creating multi-species families. But why? How do we respect, yet transcend, species? What are the mystical, cultural, practical, and even cosmic implications for our busy lives, our communities, and our evolving planet? In these wry, thought-provoking essays and comic tales an acclaimed writer explores news ways of thinking about the human-animal bond while building a full life with her animals - one challenging idea, one leap of love, one good joke at a time.
Many of us daily wonder why we live with animals - and know we wouldn't live without them. But when we start thinking about animal consiousness, rights, responsibilities, and simply getting along, we're suddenly propelled into a whole new world. Who sleeps where, who eats what, and who goes a walk or sits on a windowsill becomes a bit more complex we when consider our animal companion's feelings- and attitudes. What do compassion, love, behavior, and even what species we are have to do with living harmony with all life? Can you have fun and a life with animals?

Radio Worth Waiting For!

 Hello everyone! Well, as much as I had wanted to begin broadcasting The Catherine Bradford Show as soon as July 16th on LA Talk Radio, it appears that we are all going to have to wait for that DEBUT SHOW. Over this past week circumstances (family matters) have created the need for me to postpone my opening show from airing, and so, we will all have to wait. I am hoping to have made it to the other side of these events within a short period of time, but until then, I am asking for your patience.  In the meantime, while taking this short and temporary hiatus from being on air live, I want to invite you to keep c...
