Dara also encourages us to go for anything we want because what's the worst that can happen?  Dara Kurtz is a wife and mother, and at the age of 42 she was diagnosed with cancer.

Today's guest is Caitlin Arner, the owner of Zelda and Friends, a Dog concierge service that's perfect for you and your Dog's lifestyle. In this week's episode, we will discuss the many ways your Dog can boost your love life. Taking your Dog for a stroll increases your chances of meeting others. There is also a new trend in Al Fresco dining called "Yappy Hour." Did you know you could let your Dog play matchmaker by advertising yourself through your pet on sites such as, Leashes and Lovers, and Tindog, which is Tinder for dogs? Hook up for a play date at the dog park or meet up for coffee at a canine-friendly café. Dogs keep you in better shape, lift your mood, and are great at sniffing out suitors. How putting up a photograph of you and your Dog on a dating site will make you look more friendly, approachable, and attractive. Dating is a numbers game––walking your pup in the park or sitting on a pet-friendly patio gives you more chance encounters. We'll be talking about all things fur babies, puppy love, and how to get a jump on the dog days of summer.After spending too many uninspired years in front of a computer, sitting at a desk, Caitlin had this "crazy" notion that maybe one day she could find a career that would make her happy, give her purpose, and be sustainable long-term. Until one day, a friend wanted to pay her to watch her two new three-month-old puppies. Caitlin had grown up with dogs, adopted her Dog, Zelda but never considered that this could be the absolute perfect path for her life to take. Caitlin had this special bond with dogs, respected them, loved them if they were humans, and believed every Dog deserved the best care. The kind she would want for her Dog, one where dogs are given personal attention in a way they would typically experience at home with their family. Caitlin and I will discuss the reasons why and how people are using dogs to fetch their soulmates. Topics include:Dating with dogs.How getting a dog can solidify a relationship.The Pandemic dog purchase and dog trends during Covid.How a connection in a relationship is built around raising a dog together.How a dog can be a symbol of commitment.How dogs keep you healthy, lower blood pressure, and reduce anxiety.How dogs help combat loneliness and keep you company.Why people stay in a relationship that isn't working for the Dog.When should you introduce a dog into a new relationship?Dogfishing is a new dating term and the practice of using a dog to attract someone.How to avoid getting hooked in by a faux Fido.Research has shown that women flock to men with dogs.How people stereotype based on type of Dog the owner may have.How we select people based on friendliness just like dogs do.Your Dog is the best judge of character and can weed out unkind people who may not be best for you.To find out more about Caitlin Arner and her Dog Concierge Service, go, or follow on Instagram @zeldanfriends.

This week's episode is "Where Do We Go from Here?" with September 11th Survivor and Photographer Mike Casey. It's January 2021, and it's been a LONG month. Many people are just trying to get by and live their lives the best they can. And many have been forced to rebuild their lives. Today's guest is an expert at starting over.In the Summer of 2001, Mike Casey had just landed a top position at the largest advertising firm in New England. And TJX Companies had newly created a position for his beautiful young wife, Neilie.  On September 11th, Neilie was on American Airlines Flight 11 when it was flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Mike's life as he knew it…was over. On September 12th, he had no choice but to continue on and take care of their 7-month old baby girl, Riley. Mike explains how he dealt with the loss, picked up the pieces to create a new life, and how he found love again.For the Casey’s, life was better than good. Together, they were on top of the world. Both had great new jobs.  They had a beautiful baby, little Riley.  A new home. They were happy. When Mike found himself at the center of 911, whether he knew it or not, he found a way to navigate this epic tragedy, an event that would change his life forever. He had to rethink life for his daughter and him. In the days following 911, Mike Casey was determined not to be a victim of that day. And instead, he proudly calls himself a survivor. And yes, Mike did find love again.  In 2005, he married WBZ-TV Channel 4 news anchor Lisa Hughes in her home state of Idaho. Lisa adopted Riley.  And, ten years later after 911, Lisa and Mike adopted a newborn baby boy they named Dylan. Mike also changed careers leaving the advertising world for photography. Almost twenty years ago, his life was in shambles, but I can safely say, he in fact did not let 911 define him. Kerry Brett and Mike Casey cover a lot of ground. Topics include;When faced with tragedy or loss rely on three things; faith, family and friends.Find yourself a great therapist and peel back that onion.The importance of good-byes.When overcoming something major lose deadlines or timelines.The importance of moving forward rather than moving on.Why having zero expectations helps when dating.Take things, an hour at a time, 30 minutes at a time, or better yet live moment to moment and do the best you can to stay in the present. Keep leaning on people. Let people in, that is the key, learn to let others in.Give yourself permission to grieve, be afraid, make mistakes. There is no handbook, for surviving a pandemic. We are all trying to figure it out. Allow yourself some grace.When you lose hope or are filled with despair. Remember you’ve got your whole life ahead of you.After, this pandemic, our lives will never be the same, but you will be happy again. For more information on Mike Casey, you can find him at or follow on Instagram @caseyphoto101.
