Sue London is a People & Pet Therapist, a radio host, and much more. In 1989 she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s is a chronic intestinal disorder, which causes severe abdominal pain, cramping, fatigue and diarrhoea. Further health complications followed, including being told she would never deliver the baby she was carrying. When Sue’s illness flared up her intestine burst, and she was rushed to the hospital; doctors predicted that she was just 30 minutes from death. Fortunately, a talented surgeon was able to act quickly and save her life.
Following this dramatic event, Sue began to take pro-active steps to health and happiness. Throughout this amazing journey, Sue’s now deceased dog, Rocky (a Shih-Tzu) remained a devoted companion, and Sue tells in this interview how her dog helped her turn her life around.
Having sorted her own life out, Sue now offers help to others, and brings the healing power of dogs to all who will accept it. You'll soon be able to see Sue who'll be on the Canadian channel Petnetwork, and her show will also be available via her website and through Facebook. Sue is also going to be an Internet TV host.

Have you heard of Schutzhund? It’s a dog sport that combines three different disciplines, tracking, obedience and protection work. The DogCast Radio team visited the Leicestershire Schutzhund Club to find out more about this challenging, fascinating dog sport. It must be emphasised that sport is the applicable word; although the protection work involved looks spectacular there is no aggression whatsoever involved. Host Julie can attest to this after slipping on the Schutzhund sleeve to get up close and personal
with a gorgeous German Shepherd.
Among others, hear an interview with Alison awrence Alison the captain of the British Schutzhund team who will be going to the World Schutzhund Championships in Spain in October. You can find out more about the Leicestershire Schutzhund Club at their website and more about the World Championships.
In the DogCast Radio News you can hear stories about the ice cream van serving dogs, the pubs offering dog food, the luxury hotel with a canine menu - and surprise surprise the news that dogs are getting fatter and fatter! Also what happened when a real life hare ran into the middle of a Greyhound race, and the water that dogs should be avoiding right now, and the water where dogs can have fun. All will become clear when Kate and Nick bring you the news.
Next month is National Dog Adoption Month launched by DogsBlog and Butcher’s Pet Care.

To find out more listen to the show or read the DogCast Radio blog for more information, or visit the DogsBlog site. Let's hope even more dogs find their forever homes during National Dog Adoption Month.
