When Lucy got her dog Friede, there were some things she wasn't expecting -- like feeling like Friede's mom ... and outliving her. Contributor Caitlin Pierce brings us the story of Lucy's funeral for Friede.
Plus, Amy and Anne share their own Doggie Mommy experiences and we hear from two "Dog Guardians" whose ideas about pet parenting were shaped by their own parents' approaches to child-rearing.
Special thanks to Caitlin Pierce of bordersradio.org and Lucy of ceremoniesforpets.com.
