    Pet Radio-The Heartfelt Work of Seizure Alert Dogs for Children

    in Pets

    We have a special in depth show this week where we take a close look at the role of seizure alert service dogs.

    Magnolia Paws for Compassion highlights the remarkable impact service dogs can have on people living with a variety of medical conditions, but most specifically, those who suffer from epilepsy.

    To raise awareness of the widespread benefits of animal assistance, Magnolia Paws for Compassion has enlisted the help of Brandon McMillan, celebrity animal behaviorist and host of the Emmy-nominated television series Lucky Dog. Brandon has teamed up with Eisai, the Epilepsy Foundation and 4 Paws for Ability, a non-profit organization focused on the training and placement of service dogs for children.

    Next we will speak with Karen Shirk, 4 Paws for Ability CEO, who trains and places seizure alert service dogs, and then Tom Penders, father of Becky, whoes family received a seizure assistance dog through Magnolia Paws for Compassion.

    It is a fascinating and heart warming story to learn how these dogs are helping children and their families better cope and save lives.  You will hear first hand accounts of how these dogs are trained and the everlasting bond they have with their new family.

    We are starting the Show with Julie Hall Karlock, the administrator for the Facebook group, Dog Euphoria and the winner of the Dog Euphoria Fashion Week contest, Trish Aleve.

    Grief Stages with Pet Grief Coach, Judy Helm Wright

    in Pets

    There are very distinct, yet overlapping, phases of grief.  We go through the stages in various orders and in varying degrees on the road to recovering from any loss.  If we lose a jacket at the ballpark, we may go through all the stages in a few minutes.  If the jacket was one that was given to us by our brother on our birthday, it may take much more time.

    If the animal was a family pet and stayed outside, it may not hit us as hard as if he were our own companion and greeted us each night when we came in the door.  If your pet was a companion and best friend, the mourning will be a deep one.

    1. Shock/Denial/Numbness.  We can not believe this has happened to us.  Our body and emotions numb themselves against the pain.  The mind denies the loss.  Often we will say things like "This can't be true."  One of the valid reasos for memorials and funerals is to acknowledge that death did take place. 

    2. Fear/AngerDepression.  After the numbness wears off and we are once again able to feel, then all of our repressed feelings come roaring back.  Sometimes these feeling ared not rational at first and can seedk someone to blame, either an outsider or ourselves.  "I can't share how sad I am about my dog, because my co-workers will think I am crazy."  "But, on the other hand, I inquire about their child's cold and buy their stupid Girl Scout cookies to support them.  It isn't fair!"  "Oh God, please don't let me start crying at work again.  I heard someone call me a drama queen and say; It's only a dog, not a child." 

    3. Understanding/Acceptance/Moving on.  

    4. New Hurts May Trigger Old Wounds.

    Ron Breland U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Ron Breland (Ret.) served in the United States Army from 1990 to 2005as a DoD Certified Firefighter and a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Specialist. As a third generation firefighter, Breland realized early that his destiny was to serve. In 1993, Breland volunteered for the humanitarian-turned-combat mission in Mogadishu, Somalia where he engaged the enemy on his own ground. Unbeknownst to Breland at the time, he suffered a minor Traumatic Brain Injury after a truck explosion. He was also a Quick Reaction Force Member and thwarted a surprise attack on his basecamp by two Somali insurgents which he killed quickly during the “Battle of the Black Sea”. A tour to the war torn region of Kosovo would come later, in 1999, where then Sergeant Breland was hand-picked by the XVIII Airborne Corps Command Staff and named the Task Force Falcon Fire Chief, serving under then BG Carlos Sanchez. Breland successfully ran fire stations on three base camps in two countries while forging mutual aid agreements between the United States and other Balkan nations.
