02/26/14 - Wednesday's Topical Currents is an “At Your Service” edition, with veterinarian Dr. Ian Kupke, of Kendall’s Sabal Chase Animal Clinic. Also with us is canine behavior and training expert Edel Miedes of K9 Advisors. We’ll take your pet question calls, of course . . . and also focus on how to best introduce a new dog, puppy or cat into a household. There are numerous “do’s and don’ts.” Listen in . . . call-in . . . for Topical Currents, Wednesday at 1pm.
04/25/13 Thursday's Topical Currents begins with discussion of the SHELTER ME documentary series which airs Thursday night on WLRN-TV, Channel 17. We’ll discuss how doomed shelter dogs have become successes for search-and-rescue operations, as well as giving comfort to hospital patients and kids. And more. Linda
A teddy bear of a cat stretches across a desk. His baseball-sized orange paws skim the keyboard as his purring body contorts into a position that exposes an expansive patch of striped belly. The tableau, which plays out in my home office on a near-daily basis, is a pleasant distraction from this week's reminder that my loyal companion is a natural born killer.

Holly showed up back in West Palm Beach, only a mile from her house, on New Year's Eve. Because she had been micro-chipped, the family, two surprised and grateful humans and one bedraggled cat, were readily reunited.
