Surf Dog Ricochet
Judy Fridono and her dogs, Surf Dog Ricochet and Cori, are making a difference in the lives of adults and children who might otherwise never get the chance to enjoy being on a surfboard. Most of us try to shape our dogs into what we want them to be, but in this interview you can hear how Judy lets her dogs choose their own path in life - with amazing results.
- Judy Fridono
Ricochet specializes in sharing a surfboard with even the most severely disabled of people, and Cori is helping those who can't swim to be confident in the water. Judy produces heartwarming videos of her dogs in action, which can be found on her website Surf Dog Ricochet, some of which we've featured on the DogCast Radio blog. You can also listen to Judy's first interview in Episode 118 of DogCast Radio.
Help the Street Animals of Morocco
Lots of us go on holiday and see animals in need of help, but for most of us it's a fleeting impulse, soon forgotten once we return home. However, for Claire Sedgwick, a Registered Veterinary Nurse and her partner, Rob White, it turned into much more, and they founded the charity Help the Street Animals of Morocco (HSAM).
- Keyly Hutchinson
In this interview you can hear host Julie talking to Clinical Nursing Manager, Victoria Walker, and Veterinary Nurse and Trustee of Help the Street Animals of Morocco, Keyly Hutchinson, both from Scarsdale Vets in Derby, walk about their experiences volunteering for the charity. A team of five nurses and one vet went out to Morocco earlier this year and spent two weeks volunteering, providing free veterinary care for the city's street cats and dogs.
DogCast Radio News
In the DogCast Radio News, read by Julie and Jenny, there are stories of dogs being affected by climate change, the danger of relying on doggy DNA tests, a Guide Dog dilemma, the falling dog who got his own human safety net, the dog who swallowed a thong and dogs peeing competitively high.
This is where you can hear the dog news you might otherwise miss out on. If you spot a dog themed news story you think other DogCast Radio listeners would be interested in, do let us know about it.
Mischief likes toys.
She has lots of toys.
