I just challenged Pacelle, once again, to explain,…

I just challenged Pacelle, once again, to explain, in the face of what Vick himself admitted to doing, with vivid description to remind him, his promotion of the POS. I also reminded Mr. Pacelle that he disgusts me and makes me ponder how he sleeps at night. He won't answer, because he cannot. I can't seem to locate an e-mail to HSUS staff, but his blog contact address is:

Why not blast him today? Flood his in-box with Hate Vick mail. ;) Make him feel the wrath. HSUS needs to be put out of business, and Mr. Pacelle needs to hit the unemployment line.

Blind, Deaf Dog Helped By Her Canine Friends


Many people struggle when diagnosed with a chronic disease or the loss of a sense. Depression and anxiety are not uncommon. However, one Poodle in Idaho has dealt with both while continuing to smile and live life to the fullest – with a little help from her canine sisters!

According to The Dodo, Margaux the Poodle was nine years old when her family noticed a problem. Her owner, Scott Jordan, told The Dodo that “She had this horrible infection on her paw…We thought it was some rare snake bite.”

When he took Margaux to a specialist in Boise, they soon learned that it was something much more than a snake bite. After several visits, the specialist gave a diagnosis to Margaux’s family. The beloved dog had an autoimmune disease, diffuse pyogranulomatus inflammation. In a video on Facebook, Scott describes it as “most similar to Lupus in humans. Her body just starts attacking itself.”

In the years since, the family has been able to manage Margaux’s condition with medications. There were many times when they thought they would lose Margaux, but “she kept bouncing back,” says Scott in a video on Margaux’s Facebook page. He continued, “As a result she’s become known as the Awesome and Amazing Margaux.”

This summer, three years after the initial diagnosis, the now-twelve-year-old Margaux began to have more problems. First one eye became affected, causing great pain to Margaux. Because of the pain, Margaux needed to have that eye removed in August. While she was healing, her other eye also became affected and needed to be removed. It was at that point that the family discovered that Margaux had also lost her hearing.

The family was worried. As Scott said, to “try to figure out how to teach her what life is like in the darkness was a real difficult thing for us.” However, her canine sisters jumped in. Chloe, Suzie, and Rhonda all take turns leading Margaux on family hikes, making sure she doesn’t go off trail. Scott said that her sisters “know they have a job to do” when holding Margaux’s leash. He thinks that Margaux even prefers being led by the dogs than by him or his wife!

Embracing #GivingTuesday

Humane Society of the United States

Today on my show Humane Talk I heard from Kim Alboum, the director of the Emergency Placement Partners program for the Humane Society of the United States. I wanted to know more about how she and HSUS were celebrating #GivingTuesday. This day is the ultimate antidote to the rampant consumerism of Black Friday, when everybody is urged to Buy! Buy! Buy! and get “deals” on their purchases. Kim suggested that a way to “get a great deal” would be to give to animals in need and extend the gift: for every #1 you donate on Giving Tuesday to HSUS, their fund for emergency services for the animals will get a bowl of super premium food from Halo – which is called “America’s best loved holistic brand” (and Halo loves the work of the Humane Society of the U.S.). Kim and I also discussed how important it is – beyond the #GivingTuesday donations to HSUS – that people in the animal welfare community stop squabbling among themselves and making judgments. We need to give respect and kindness to the shelter workers, who are the first line of defense – especially in emergency situations – taking in animals so that their journey to Forever Homes can begin.

#GivingTuesday donations can also be done on Facebook.



Tracie began her career as a radio personality with a live show – DOG TALK® (and Kitties, Too!) – on the local NPR station in the Hamptons, Peconic Public Broadcasting (WPPB) from Southampton, New York (the show is now also carried on the NPR station Robinhood Radio in Connecticut and the Berkshires). DOG TALK® won a Gracie® Award (the radio equivalent of an Oscar) in 2010 as the “Best entertainment and information program on local public radio” and continues weekly after more than 450 continuous shows and 9 years on the air. Tracie’s live weekly call-in show CAT CHAT® was on SiriusXM satellite radio for seven years until the Martha Stewart channel was canceled in 2013.

Tracie lives in Vermont where the Radio Pet Lady Network studio is based, on 13 acres well-used by her all-girl pack – two lovely, lively Weimaraners, Maisie and Wanda, and a Collie-mix, Jazzy.
