Attorney Fred Kray, cohost Kris Diaz, and the rest of the PBLNR crew welcome Larry Levin. Mr. Levin adopted Oogy—an abandoned, scar-covered dog that police had rescued—and eventually wrote a book about it, Oogy—The Dog Only a Family Could Love. Mr. Levin discusses how he came to write the book, what Oogy has been up to since the book came out, the many surgeries Oogy has undergone, the experience of going from pit bull owner to dogo argentino owner, and the fostering program he'd like to start. You can find Oogy's facebook page here.

Kim Wolf and Jeff Theman also check in and give us their impressions of the discussion they, along with Josh Liddy, had with Merritt Clifton (you can watch it here). Kim maintains that Mr. Clifton is an armchair researcher with very little experience dealing with either actual "pit bulls" or their owners.

Plus, advocacy with Little Darling, pit bull news, and Yvette Van Veen's advice for putting a stop to pestering behavior (give the dog something else to do).
