Hello! I'm Susan Frank. I know it’s been awhile since you’ve heard from us. We’re happy to announce that we now have a new podcast. Introducing, "Raising Your Paws," your go-to pet parent resource, along with this brand new website. Our blog will accompany and expand on things we talk about in the podcast episodes.
Please give our podcast a listen! It’s designed for you, the pet parent and offers quick tips and practical solutions for caring for your four-legged family members – cats and dogs.
I’m hosting the podcast and writing this blog. Here's a photo of me and my dog, Rosy. She's a Shetland Sheepdog/German Shephard mix. 6 years old.
You'll be hearing some stories about her as we cover topics such as "why do our pets do what they do," the reasons for their mystifying behaviors. You'll know what to do about their actions and how to best meet the needs of our canine and feline family members while still maintaining a happy and sane household.
I welcome your comments and questions about our blog postings and the podcast – and now will be responding regularly to them. If you’re not sure what a podcast is or how to get one or listen to it, here is what to do.
A podcast is a talk radio show that you get on the internet and can listen to any time you want. There are two ways to listen. Through a website, (called streaming) or by downloading a podcast.
