Dog Tales is an engaging new podcast (first released just four months ago) that highlights heartwarming, inspirational true stories of dogs that have both saved and changed lives with their acts of heroism and love. Each weekly episode shares the special bond between dog and companion.
Admittedly, I am always on the lookout for “feel good” news stories about dogs and their companions. I was instantly captivated when I listened to the trailer for Dog Tales. The first episode is about a German Shepherd, Buddy: the first American seeing eye dog. The narrator recalls the history from both Buddy’s point of view and his companion, Morris’. Based on history from news articles and books, I was awed and inspired as I was transported to the 1920’s. The background music added to the sense of adventure, and when I closed my eyes, I was able to “watch” the story unfold in my imagination. The characters came to life, and it was easy to forget that I was immersed in a history lesson.
Each episode is thirty minutes to one hour in length. When you listen in, expect to experience the adventures of bomb-sniffing dogs, the Royal Corgis, Roosevelt’s Scottish Terrier, the Mayflower pilgrim dogs, a 9-11 rescue dog, and two Siberian Huskies that travel across Alaska to deliver medicine. (Oh, and grab some Kleenex!)
Dog Tales educates and enlightens its listeners, and I highly recommend it.
