Today's Pawsome Human: Christine A. Dorchak & Carey Theil: Authors of Brooklyn Goes Home
Wishing you a Merry Christmas 🎅🎄
I have no idea where the year went 😛 Feels like it started a month ago.
Starting Soul Touched by Dogs has no doubt been one of the highlights of my 2023, and it wouldn’t be what it is without YOU.
I'd like to wish you, your family, and your dog(s) a Merry Christmas!
And I'd like to thank you for being here.
The best thing ..
about this project has been meeting so many remarkable people - Pawsome Humans - as I like to call them, people who do great work for dogs and their people.
And I’ve brought a bunch of them together to share their wisdom with you during a virtual event I’m super excited about ..
Panic to Peace - Holistic Approaches to Easing Anxiety in Rescue Dogs
A virtual conference for dog lovers: Feb 19-25, 2024
It’s for those who have adopted a dog who is anxious, perhaps reactive, struggling to overcome trauma or separation anxiety.
When your dog struggles, your life changes, and not for the better.
You can’t just go for relaxed strolls, have people over, or go out for a bit without stress and worry.
It can take the fun out of sharing your life with a dog.
Or maybe, you’re not sure whether adopting a dog is a good idea altogether. After all, you won’t know what kind of “baggage” you’ll have to deal with.
I’ve invited wonderful experts who will give you kind, gentle, holistic, connection-based tools and solutions so you feel equipped to support your dog.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll share more about the topics we’ll cover.
Stay tuned 🐾
This week’s Pawsome Humans: Christine A. Dorchak and Carey Theil - Authors of Brooklyn Goes Home
In this episode, I had the privilege of speaking with Christine and Carey, the founders of GREY2K USA Worldwide.
They are a non-profit advocacy organization working to end the cruelty of greyhound racing across the globe.
Christine and Carey shared their personal journeys and how they both became passionate about helping greyhounds.
I learned about the widespread issue of greyhound racing in different countries, including Spain, and the importance of raising awareness about the cruelty these dogs endure.
The highlight of the conversation was the inspiring story of Brooklyn, a greyhound they rescued from a dodgy race track in China and who became a symbol of hope and change (and the hero of their book Brooklyn Goes Home).
Brooklyn, the greyhound who defied the odds
We discussed the challenges they faced in their campaign and the power of grassroots movements in achieving significant change. If you're interested in learning more about their work and their book, you can visit their website at grey2kusa.org or find their book on Amazon.
This episode is a testament to the impact everyday people can make in fighting for animal welfare and creating a better world for all beings.
If you love dogs, you don't want to miss this one.
Brooklyn got a chance to discover the good life
