Today we have an all NEWFOUNDLAND DOG special! A lifeguard Newfie named Reef jumps out of helicopters for the Italian Coast Guard; a Newf named Hairy Man pulled 180 Irish Immigrants off of Wreck Rock to safety on the Isle aux Morts (literally the Island of the Dead); and one unnamed Newfie gave this podcaster the best rabbit hole about Napoleon Bonaparte's Body Parts that you'll ever hear. #SorryNotSorry. Let's Go!
Melissa's work can be found at MelissaMcCueMcGrath.com and her book, Considerations for the City Dog can be purchased at Dogwise.com or through any independent retailers by request, or online. Because the Internet is magic.

Newfies Join the Italian Coast Guard
This segment was inspired by minisode 219 of "My Favorite Murder" where a listener wrote in with her story about how her family would not exist if it were not for Hairy Man, the Newfoundland. Karen and Georgia are my sheroes and while they are not for children, I'm glad I was able to take that story and learn more. https://omny.fm/shows/my-favorite-murder-with-karen-kilgariff-and-georgi/mfm-minisode-219
