Whew! I don't know about you guys, but I'm exhausted after the holidays! All I really want to do is curl up by a warm fire and take a long winter's nap. However, this week, we've got someone to inspire you to get out and do just the opposite!
Plus, we have an award-winning journalist who is taking on the entire shelter industry, Ask The Vet makes a comeback, and an Adorable Adoptable!
The ever-so-fit and ever-so-fabulous Lisa Reed, owner of Lisa Reed Fitness, joins us with some fantastic Winter work out tips for you and your pooch! She has some great ways of getting rid of those holiday pounds and getting back in shape for Spring! Watch her on the show, and see a few of her tips below:
1) Have the right equipment! - Lisa and I both love our new Breeze Comfort sports tops and you will too! Stay tuned to The Pet Show's Facebook page on Saturday to learn how you can win one for yourself! These tops are made with environmentally friendly organic bamboo charcoal to keep you from smelling like your dog (by absorbing impurities and foreign matter) and Supplex that keeps your temperature regulated in the heat or in the cold! These sports bras/tops have been worn by many of the Dancing With The Stars dancers, Ali Fedetowsky, Mayim Bialik, and even some celebrity "vampires!"
2) Be the center of attention for your pup when you work out with your dog.
3) Warm up inside before you head out in the cold.
4) How to know if it's too cold to run/walk with your pup.
5) Hydrate - even when it's cold.
6) Be consistent and committed.
Next up, we're joined via Skype by award-winning journalist Kim Kavin, author of Little Boy Blue: A Puppy's Rescue from Death Row and his Owner's Journey for Truth. When Kim decided that she wanted a puppy, she did what millions of people do every year: clicked on an online photo and submitted an application.
She had no idea that her adorable puppy was actually a last-minute rescue from a high-kill North Carolina shelter. The book chronicles her shocking expose' into the brutal ongoing reality inside many of the country's taxpayer funded shelters, and her pledge to make a change in the system.
"Ask the Vet" is back, and the Director of Major Gifts from Washington Humane Society, Darcy Levit, joins us to talk about end of year giving, 12 Days of Adoptables, and The Sugar & Champagne Affair taking place on Jan. 31.
We've got a super "famous" Adorable Adoptable, as well, as the incredibly handsome Bruno Mars (the canine version) comes to the show looking for a forever home...and he's amazing, just the way he is! Sorry, couldn't resist.
Tune in Saturday at 11 a.m.!
