Lighten Up #83: Dog Days of Summer with Jeannie Cunnion

We’re in the Dog Days of Summer and today’s guest is my friend Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free and teller of hilarious dog stories. I laughed until I cried during our conversation. And hey, if you have small children and aren’t ready to to explain reproductive biology to them yet, you might want to grab some headphones. You’ve been warned. This podcast could also be titled, “The Shitzu Had Its Period.” Today on Lighten Up, love is in the air…and the only thing stopping it is a very determined Jeannie Cunnion. Neuter and spay your dogs, listen in, and lighten up.
