Just wanted to let you know that I heard your recording on NPR about dogs. Thank you for a very high quality recording. It was superb… just wonderfully warm and smart at the same time. It made me laugh and cry. I want to share it with friends who love animals… where can I point folks to in order to hear it? I could not find it at npr.org.
