It's A Doggy Dog World Episode 187 Keeping Busy

1/27/2021
As we recorded this podcast we're still in the midst of COVID and most of us are at home either full time or part time. We're all, at least, being careful.

11/9/2020
In the last couple of weeks prior to recording this podcast, there were eight or nine headlines concerning bad dog bites, maulings, and even fatalities.

And what should you do afterwards. This isn't a fun subject, it's not a happy podcast, and hopefully you'll never need this...
