Today’s show is the second installment of host Dorothy Wills-Raftery’s new storytelling feature that will periodically air in between traditional interview episodes. This new feature will be the reading of excerpts from her award-winning book EPIc Dog Tales: Heartfelt Stories About Amazing Dogs Living & Loving Life With Canine Epilepsy.

Dorothy, also known as the “FiveSibesMom,” is an author, Siberian Husky aficionado, Canine Epilepsy advocate, and official Purple Day® Ambassador since 2012. On these storytelling podcasts, she will be reading to our listeners several stories from the 122 stories in her book, as shared by the loving families and caregivers of dogs living with seizures and Canine Epilepsy.
The “Epi-Stars” of the book are of all different breeds from around the globe, including her own Gibson, a wooly Siberian Husky whose journey launched a worldwide awareness advocacy campaign—theFiveSibes™ #LiveGibStrong K-9 Epilepsy Awareness & Educational Campaign. Through these heartfelt stories we learn about some pretty amazing Epi-dogs and their families, who share the trials and tribulations of living with a dog who has Canine Epilepsy. They are truly inspiring dogs, showing us that they do not let seizures stop them from enjoying life!
The large, beautiful, highly reviewed coffee table book is the first book of its kind and the recipient of:
