In this episode of The Woof Life Show the podcast for dog lovers, Lauren Farricker chats with Henry Friedman. Henry is a part of Team Dogist and has one of the most incredible adoption stories that we’ve heard in a long time. For Henry a chance encounter mixed with fate allowed him to adopt an incredibly special pup who was born in a bush in Puerto Rico. This puppy along with his mother and siblings were rescued by The Sato Project and he was transported to the US. Henry found in Finn a partner in crime and a companion for adventure. They’ve traveled all over the US and Canada exploring, meeting people and helping rescue pups. Henry has a huge passion after his life was so changed by a rescue dog and has created a Patreon giving back each month to rescues that you’ve never heard of. We love what this dynamic duo is doing and we want to support their cause!

Pitbull Advocation through Comedy - A Conversation with Dianne Scott a Pitbull Dog Mom & Breed Advocate and the Content Creator behind Tale of Two Pitties @aTaleOf2Pitties
In this episode of The Woof Life Show the podcast for dog lovers, Lauren Farricker chats with Dianne Scott who is a pitbull dog mom and a breed advocate. She’s also the Content Creator behind Tale of Two Pitties @aTaleOf2Pitties and the web series @mayorroo. Dianne is an actress, advocate, stepmother, writer and someone who just plain makes us laugh. When she adopted a pitbull named Hurley her life was forever changed. She went from someone who was afraid of pitbulls and under the assumption that they were dangerous pups that were not safe in a home to the biggest pitbull lover around. However, she quickly noticed how she was perceived and treated because of her pup. She adopted another pitbull mix and created an Instagram for the duo as dog moms do. They were even featured on the Ellen show!!! Dianne took her unbridled love for pitbulls and created a brand and community of animal-lovers they wrote a children’s book series, created a clothing line, and a YouTube series. When Hurley was diagnosed with Lymphoma, she was shattered and when he eventually passed away she was devastated. She wrote a book about it “Hurley Goes To Heaven” to help children cope with the loss of their pets. She’s gone on to create so much fun content that makes me laugh out loud mostly in public places. She believes that showing pitbulls as goofballs helps to change the perception of them as vicious creatures who are capable of hurting people so her content is aimed to demystify and educate people on the truth behind the pitbull Breed. We are a big fan of Dianne and her mission!
