100 – Pure Dog Talk – Celebrate Our 100th Episode – Laura Reeves

Pure Dog Talk 100

Pure Dog Talk’s 100th Episode – Thanks to Our Listeners!

Pure Dog Talk Celebrates 100th Episode!  Laura Reeves reminisces and reminds our listeners about summer, dog shows, and celebrations.

Laura Reeves and Mary Albee

It’s been a journey.

Laura Reeves, host of PureDogTalk,  on-the-spot reporter, newspaper journalist, PHA Handler and second generation dog breeder.

Mary Albee, producer, Norwegian Elkhound fancier since 1985, has 38 years in film and television as stunt performer, stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director.

Why Pure Dog Talk?

Passion.  Love for our breeds.  Stupidity?

Why spend hours and hours planning, recording, editing and publishing a podcast or “radio show on demand”?

Giving Back

Pure Dog Talk is our way of giving back.  Giving back to our mentors, to the generations of dogs that have touched our lives, passed over the bridge, but remain alive in our hearts.


Preservation efforts for the future existence of our breeds,  preservation of our mentors history and knowledge, preservation and fight for all dog sports right to exist.

Future of Pure Dog Talk

We don’t know… it’s a journey for us and with you, our listeners.

We watch as dog magazines fail, as PETA and HSUS efforts limit our rights to breed and own dogs, as clubs try to put on shows with only a few aging members…

We listen to the moans and groans of declining entries, poor quality dogs, lack of good dog breeders…

What is Your Choice?

At Pure Dog Talk, our choice is positive, period.

We look to a purebred dog-filled future.

Our goals are to help foster or sponsor positive, educational programs that improve our breeds, breeders, and rights of ownership:

  • Preservation Breeding Programs
  • Breeder and Exhibitor Education
  • Youth and Public Education
  • Archives for Breeds and Breeders

THRIVE: Prosper, flourish, bloom, blossom, advance, succeed, boom, to develop vigorously.

Technical and Author Support

Our time and skills are limited.  If you like we are doing, we could use writers and technical skills.  It takes a village…

Our Future Secret is Out… the Breed Shows

By request, some breeds are asking for breed specific episodes.

Pure Dog Talk plans to do better than that…

(oh…there went the rest of my vacation and time off)

The Breed Shows

If your Breed Club would like, Pure Dog Talk will help create a channel (show) just for your breed.  The purpose is to archive breed mentors/judges/breeders and provide education for the next generation and the public.

We have two requirements…

  1.  A breed club “host”
  2. Parent Club support
