Dogs do so much for us—giving us comfort and love everyday. In the case of Dogs Who Change the World, these hero dogs help people live fuller and richer lives by going above and beyond the call of doggy duty to help them navigate their world. That is why Milk-Bone has teamed up with Canine Assistants to do more for dogs and honor a few of these exceptionally hard-working canines around the country. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Dudley Arnold of Canine Assistance Programs of Georgia as he talks about the work that goes into preparing service dogs for work with humans.

Everyone knows that America is 50 states and…some other stuff. Scattered shards in the Pacific and the Caribbean, the not-quite states—American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands—and their 4 million people are often forgotten, even by most Americans. But they’re filled with American flags, U.S. post offices, and Little League baseball games. How did these territories come to be part of the United States? What are they like? And why aren’t they states? Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30  when Al is joined by best selling author Doug Mack as he discusses his latest book; "The Not-Quite States of America".
