I'm Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter, and I am the ""Living with Dogs"" columnist for I've actually written 6 books and I'm hard at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs -- that's as much as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody's life is complete without one. So I'm here to tell you about a variety of different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you'll adopt one soon. The Bernese Mountain Dog; is really a symbol of Switzerland. There, was a movie recently called, ""North Face"". Um, and it was about a famous couple of climbers out in the Alps. And, um when the camera sort of panned in the cross, we knew it was Switzerland because we saw a farmer with his Bernese Mountain dog. It's a really iconic dog, beautiful dog, ah, gorgeous coat, like tri-color, black, brown, and white, marking. Switzerland, obviously the Alpine region, it's cold; and the dog thrives in a cold environment. But, you see these dogs, in Texas; you see them in the hot summer in New York, and, you know, this isn't really their environment, but people want to have them. So, they will actually, super refrigerator air-conditioning the air, so, for the dogs comfort. Because it is such a special dog, and it's a sweet dog, but these dogs can, can, if not properly trained and managed, can also be destructive and do things. You know, they need a job to do, because that's, what they were breed to do, is work with farmers. So, the most popular job, you can give to any dog, is, doing therapy work. It's an incredible rewarding thing for the dog but also for the person, the therapy partner human, that goes with the dog. You, basically, go through a training period, where you learn how to behave when you visit, hospitals or nursing homes and more and more people are finding out just how rewarding this work is. And, NOW! We have a new book, that's just about to come out in April of the author Martin Kind has written about his own Bernese Mountain Dog, as a different kind of species of life savor, because he talks about how, she helped him overcome his addiction to alcohol. It's a very funny book. It's a darkly funny book. It's kind like ""The Lost Weekend"" meets the shaggy dog. And, I really think that it's going to raise the Bernese's profile. Even more.
