Dr. Chuck Kopczak

Hi hi hi!!! We’re BACK for season two! Hope you all have your permission slips signed and picked a buddy because we are going on a field trip to see DOGS! A Science Tail at the California Science Center.  But first, leaping labradors we missed you guys! We have so much to tell you! Crumb and Tugboat met for a photoshoot and we don’t want to say BEST FRIEND MODELS, but someone should. Next, we have a call from our Austin correspondent Legs Ringo with some investigative reporting on whether or not there are dogs in Austin. And for the main event, friend of the show, Alie Ward, generously hooked us up with an interview with Dr. Chuck Kopczak the Curator of Life Sciences at California Science Center and the genius who brought us the science center’s latest exhibit Dogs! A Science Tail. You’ll learn all about this amazing exhibit, if it’s coming to a town near you, and if the dog running test is rigged, like Renee suspects. PLUS a My Mutt Minute from Jenny and Sam. Hold on to your Basenjis because this episode has it all! We’re so happy to be back! WE MISSED YOU GUYS!
