Saturday Survey: Animal Planet Vet Shows

rp_Saturday-Survey-Graphic-350x2331-350x233-350x233-350x2331-350x233.jpgI am in love with the vet shows on Animal Planet. My typical Saturday involves watching the reruns all day, then catching the original episodes at night.

I know they show some non-pet related stuff, too, like River Monsters, North Woods Law, and Treehouse Masters (which I can’t figure out how that relates to animals), but my favorites are the ones that show vets. How about you?

Last Minute Request to Rent “Shelter Me” at Redbox

Have you seen the new PBS show called “Shelter Me” yet? It’s being promoted as an “inspiring series that celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories.”

The real news here is that if you rent a copy of episode 1 from Redbox before Monday night, they will donate the money to Ellen DeGeneres’ Halo Pet Foundation, which will help many shelter pets.

Check it out!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Levi: FBI dog

Do you remember the PAX series, Sue Thomas, F.B.Eye that aired from 2002 – 07?  One of the major stars of the show was Levi, the golden retriever who served as an assistance dog to Ms. Thomas.  The series was based on the true story of Sue Thomas, who served first as a fingerprint specialist for the FBI, then was promoted to a surveillance team with the help of her assistance dog.

Because of the involvement of Levi, Animal Planet has picked up the syndication option on the show and is broadcasting repeats on Monday nights at 9 pm.  If things go well, they may even have more episodes produced.

If you didn’t see the show the first time around, it’s worth checking out.  Not terribly dramatic or suspenseful, but a good way to see how differently-abled people interact with their assistance dogs, and not a bad story about the type of cases the FBI pursues.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
