Tanya and I talk about a mutually favorite subject…DOGS! Beyond their puppy dog eyes and waggly tails, she shares how Agape Animal Rescue came to be, what it’s like to raid a dog fighting operation, and how inspiring it is when she’s able to find forever homes for rescues who simply want to be someone’s everything. What happened to dogs affected by Hurricane Harvey? What about Michael Vick? Did Gypsy find a home? All that and more.
