SORT BY Relevancy
In the world of Pit Bull Advocacy, we all want the same thing. The fair and equal treatments of the dogs we know and love as Pit Bull. One thing has been clear in my 12 years as an owner, lover, and advocate, our methods and views are not always the same, and we can, and we do, clash. In fighting, boasting, egos, and more. What can we do as advocates to look past those differences, avoid such clashes and do away with the egos involved, including our own?
Join Dogfather and Joe on our 1st show of 2015 as we discuss this and more. We welcome your calls with comments and questions. Phone lines open at the top of the show. 347-838-8615

Inspiration on Tap: Living and Thriving with Rustie MacDonald
Rustie Macdonald was born knowing that she wanted to help others to heal, to grow and to thrive. Her life story is a zigzag journey of survival, learning, and loving life. Having survived things no child should have to endure, Rustie refused to become bitter. Instead she used her experiences to foster in herself an internal strength, deep compassion and empathy for her fellow man in all circumstances. As a veteran of the foster care system, she became an advocate for other foster children, seeking a way to create opportunities for education and a better life. She founded Celiac Roads Life coaching to help community groups and individuals move beyond their perceived limits to thrive far beyond what they believed possible for themselves. Rustie is a gifted motivational speaker, with a down to earth, practical style.
In 2011, Rustie realized she could help a far wider audience by reaching out over the airwaves. She discovered blog radio and “Living and Thriving with Rustie MacDonald” was born. Every week Rustie brings inspiration to thousands with guest speakers bringing insight for Mind, body and soul. Her international audience numbers in the thousands and is growing every week.
Look for her new book “Having Tea with My Skeletons” coming this spring.
Rustie lives on the New England seacoast with her beloved Daughter.

Listen as Mr. Brett A. Scudder hosts a dialog with gun violence victims, survivors and advocated about Correlation between Mental Health and Gun Violence and the human impacts on victims, survivors and communities.
His focus is to bring people's attention to the mindset of violence that allows one to take a life and the trauma experienced by the victim (if survived), loved ones and community overall. Will be a great dialog. Many people never look at the root cause of the violence, nor do they realize the psychological impacts of it.
Please share and help to promote the effort.
