Great Radio Show!!


Every Friday while I'm at the computer updating the blogs, I listen to Dave McMahon's "Dog Talk With Dave" radio show, originating from the Niagara Region. Each week at 1:00 PM, Dave spends a half hour discussing pet issues with guests from the industry. The show is very fun & informative, and I learn something each time I listen. If you're near a radio on Fridays at one, make sure to tune in CFBU 103.7 FM, or listen online by clicking the link under resources at the left hand of the blog :)
