Sharon Sakson Headlines The Next "Conversations with Animal Authors" Teleconference
The Animal Communication Book Club's next "Conversations with Animal Authors" Teleconference, featuring Sharon Sakson, author of "Paws & Effect: The Healing Power of Dogs," will be held on Monday, June 29th, 2009 at 5:30pm (EDT)
Ms. Sakson is a writer, journalist, television producer, Whippet and Brussels Griffon breeder, dog show judge, and Pet Life Examiner for Examiner.com. She is also a passionate dog lover and an intrepid investigator of the canine character and how dogs affect and change the lives of the people who love them.
"I'm delighted to have the opportunity to talk with Sharon Sakson, and to tap into her insights about dogs and their power to bring genuine healing to the people they love. Until I read Paws & Effect: The Healing Power of Dogs, I thought I knew a lot about what dogs were capable of. But Sharon's sensitively recounted stories of dogs' unselfish devotion and nobility opened up a wonderful world, where dogs seemed to intervene in the lives of people who needed their help, often with an aura of magic and always without fanfare."
Along the way, Sharon deftly includes some fascinating tidbits, such as the fact that the Assistance Dogs Institute has intentionally bred light-colored Golden Retrievers and Yellow Labs because their pale coat color seems to be linked with the traits that are associated with successful service dogs.
