Attorney Fred Kray, cohost Kris Diaz, and the rest of the PBLNR crew welcome Scottie Westfall, who writes the fascinating The Retriever, Dog, & Wildlife Blog. (Be forewarned, you may randomly follow a link and find yourself reading for hours about the history of the St. John's Water Dog.) Mr. Westfall offers perspective on breeding working dogs and problems in dog breeding from the world of hunting and other working dogs. Our wide ranging discussion touches upon inbreeding, dog fighting, sled dogs, guidedogs, and the suitability of working dogs as pets.

Valerie Schey details how she won a city on South Bend's city council and convinced her community to abandon breed-discriminatory policies and overhaul outdated animal control ordinances.
