Bryan Bickell of Chicago Blackhawks is joined by Amanda Caskenette of Chicago Loves Pits on Steve Dale's Pet World on WGN Radio, Saturday April 20, 1:05 .p.m. CDT to talk about their fundraiser. Pints for Pits at Red Ivy (3525 N. Clark Street, near Addison). Pints for Pits is April 27, 7 to 10 p.m. I will host the event, and raffle items include a signed Bickell Blackhawk jersey, a Blackhawk stick and more. This organization is all about saving dogs - those that need saving the most, dogs called pit bulls.
I will also make a special announcement having to do with the Chicago Blackhawks.
From the Anti Cruelty Society, Nadine Wamsley hangs out to Bark about a GREAT fitness and dog-friendly, dog-fun event, called Bark in the Park. This 19th annual 5K walk for dogs or run for people is May 4, at Montrose Harbor in Lincoln Park. The run begins at 9 and the walk at 9:15.
Of the many, many vendors in the park - you'll find free samples for best friends, you lean learn more about pheromone products (Feliway and Adaptil) to help anxious pets, and much, much more.... so after the walk, folks do hang out....Also, hosts include myself and Bart Shore of WBBM-AM and Roz Varon and Hosea Sanders of WLS-TV news.
As always before my show (at 1:05 p.m.), I'm on the radio with Bill Moller at 11:30 a.m. I take phone calls on pet behavior questions - but will also be interviewing Jon Provost....You DO remember him, the guy who Lassie rescued time and again: the original Timmy. Provost will appear at the Museum of Broadcast Communications (360 N. State Street) noon on April 27, in a program - which I am planned to host - called "Remembering Lassie." Of course, we all do! It will be a wonderfully fun event, if he can make it there without falling into a well.
