Shilo the Email Dog

It's fun when authors like Susan Lustig put themselves into the mind of their dogs and write from the dog's point of view. It's "dog communication" at its best. You know that Callie Golden Retriever writes this blog at times. And guests on the "My Doggie Says..." radio talk show have included Garth Stein, who wrote from Enzo's point of view, and Dean Koontz, who often captures the perspectives of Trixie Koontz Golden Retriever. Susan Lustig's "Emails from Shilo: The story of a dog's quest to figure out most everything" is a great addition to this art form. Hear Susan talk about Shilo and his inner thoughts on the "My Doggie Says..." radio talk show:   The “My Doggie Says…” show helps listeners gain a deeper appreciation for “Man’s Best Friend.” The show is broadcast live from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights, on KFNX 1100, Phoenix. It is streamed live on www.1100kfnx.com. Host Fred Haney interviews dog whisperers, dog trainers, authors of dog books, and experts on all aspects of dogs and dog behavior and dog nature. The show is also available as a podcast on iTunes. Go to the iTunes store, click on "Podcast," and search for "My Doggie Says..." Keep an eye out for the new CD, "Dog Appreciation Lessons: Humor and Wisdom from People who Love Dogs." It's some of the "best of the best of" clips (18) from the "My Doggie Says..." show. Appearing soon on this web site! You'll hear wit and wisdom from Stanley Coren, Dean Koontz, Ted Kerasote, Tom Sullivan, and many other authors and dog experts.
