From an early age, Jocelyn became aware of a universal energy that flows between all living things. She sensed an emotional spectrum on par with humans in the dogs and horses she grew up with as an only child in Port Washington, New York. There was a channel of communication between animals and humans that was waiting to be unlocked. At a young age, she discovered that her gift of deciphering this energy was also the key to understanding who we are as human beings and the deep commonalities we share with our animal counterparts.

Now living in Denver, Colorado, Jocelyn works as an energetic counselor, strengthening the connection of individuals to their animal companions all over the country. Her book, The Secret Language of Dogs: Stories From a Dog Psychic, offers enlightenment on how to improve the flow of communication between you and your pet.

Amazon Studios, Blumhouse Productions and Black Bar Mitzvah present a 1 hour 40-minute, Horror, Mystery, Sci-fi, directed by Emmanuel Osei-Koffour, written by Wade Allain-Marcus and Stephen Herman with a release date of October 6, 2020.

101 Rescue Puppies: One Family's Story of Fostering Dogs, Love, and Trust By Kathy Callahan New book offers A unique and cheering look into one family’s journey of fostering over 100 puppies and finding them homes “These are love stories, plain and simple.” — JENNIFER S. HOLLAND, author of the New York Times bestselling Unlikely Friendships series “Told with humor and humility, 101 Rescue Puppies is as entertaining as it is inspiring.” — TRAER SCOTT, author of Shelter Dogs and Finding Home Over the past decade, Kathy Callahan’s family has taken in more than 100 rescue puppies from shelters. Each pup has an endearing story, and in this delightful photo-filled book, Callahan shares many of them. Her family didn’t set out to be puppy saviors, but as Callahan puts it, “Somebody had surrendered a mother dog, Nala, and her less-than-a-month-old pups at the local shelter. . . . I thought about that exhausted nursing mom who’d been caring for those seven puppies around the clock, only to find herself suddenly homeless. There are a lot of terrible things that happen in life, and I can’t do a darned thing about most of them. It struck me that this was a tiny little tragedy in my corner of the world that our family could remedy.” A heartwarming read, this is also an inspiring example of finding your own way — through that one special thing you can do to light a light, instead of cursing the darkness. KATHY CALLAHAN is a certified professional dog trainer. Her PupStart business offers coaching, socialization, and training services to families with new dogs. She and her dogs have worked as a therapy team in elementary schools and nursing homes. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

Founder & Director: Love from Luke was established in 2017 by Melissa Anne Sweeney (Lissa) . She has 25 years experience working with rescued animals. Her mission to have the rescued dogs help to emotionally heal as many people as possible. There is an special comfort animals can offer us and the is why they are blessing. Melissa is the author of the Love from Luke book series. In her spare time, which is very little, she continues to write about the dogs she has worked and the lessons they have taught her. She is originally from Milford, MA and has resided in Tampa, FL for 16 years. Hi Everyone, Hi there- my name is Melissa, thanks for visiting our page. Thisis a picture of myself and "soon to be therapy dog," Loved Luna. I am dog mom for special needs dogs and founder of Love from Luke a 5013c non-profit. 100% of items purchased from this site goes directly to our dogs. Prior to going into full-time dog rescue and non-profit work I was a military college professor for 8 years. I have a Doctorate (DBA) in International Business and conducted detailed research on various cultures to create unity and high-performing teams. My professional name is Dr. Melissa Anne Sweeney but nowadays I go by Lissa, just drop the ME off Melissa. I currently have two Love from Luke books published. Prior to that had 9 nine research/textbook published- they didn't do as good as my LFL books surprisingly (ha-ha). I was forever changed in May of 2014, when I rescued a senior Siberian Husky who I named Luke. My personal passion is animal rescue and well-being. For over 20 years I have assisted dogs and cats find forever homes where they are loved and healed from their past abuse. Caring for abused and mistreated animals is rewarding but, I won't lie, it can also be stressful! That is why I felt it was important for me to write the book Love from Luke: Lessons learned from a Rescued Dog! My goal is to help individuals who rescued animals better understand how they often communicate with us when they have had an abusive past. In this book I share the journey I had with my 11 year old senior rescue, Luke. I learned to recognize that many of Luke’s reactions were caused by his abusive past. Other times, his behavior was because he was not feeling good. While learning how to relate to Luke and meet his needs, I was introduced to the highest and closest bond a human and animal can create. This was established because mutual respect was formed. This respect created a deep love within me, not only for Luke, but for animals in need and fellow rescuers. Luke taught me how to create a loving trustworthy bond with previously neglected and/or abused dogs. Before Luke passed I promised him that I would continue to rescue animals and help educate on how people can become more involved in rescuing abused animals. GOD definitely heard the promise I made and divinely placed specials needs dogs into my life. These dogs have come from some of the most severe abuse and/or were born with physical disabilities and I became a 5013c non-profit dog sanctuary. I recognized how my dogs started to inspire others, because they are truly loved and are clueless that they are different. I realized they are a perfect example to teach others that we are beautifully and wonderfully made. PLUS they and love to serve others. After time in prayer and reflection I realized what a blessing it is to serve other and assist in contributing to ones local community. The goal of Love from Luke expanded to have previously abused individuals (unwanted, out-fostered youth, domestic violence and human traffic survivors) help heal through the animals and later have them become active in training and working with the dog too. Creating a win-win for all members of the community, the person and the dog both brings joy, laughter, companionship and entertainment (for sure) to others. Let's face it, this would needs more healing and love. Additionally, as I was writing the book more ideas came to me that I know other pet parents and animal lovers would appreciate and before I knew I had a store of healthy pet treats, custom tee-shirts and jewelry with the photos of my rescues. If you live in the Florida area or come to visit please look for me at local crafts shows or any outdoor events where vendors are welcomed! If you bring your fur-baby they can sample my treats!

Talkin' Pets News September 26, 2020 Host - Jon Patch Co-Host - Karen Vance - Dog Trainer and Agility Producer - Lexi Adams Network Producer - Darian Sims Social Media Consultant - Bob Page Special Guests - Melissa Anne Sweeney - Founder/Director of Love from Luke at 5pm ET / Singer/songwriter Brecken Miles will join Jon & Talkin' Pets 9/26/20 at 620pm ET to discuss his new single "Meghan" and give away some Coozies and his first EP
Brecken Miles Brings Tidal Wave Of Emotion To New Single, “Meghan” - Available To Fans Now Track Debuts On iHeart Radio’s FM106.1 New From Nashville Show Next Tuesday Nashville, TN (September 11, 2020) – Singer/songwriter Brecken Miles brings a tidal wave of feeling to his emotionally raw new single, “Meghan.” In a surprise twist, fans can stream/download the song HERE now. Brecken’s fourth radio release, the track debuts globally next Tuesday, September 15, at 6 p.m. Central on iHeart Radio’s “New From Nashville” show (FM 106.1 / Milwaukee) and radio programmers can access the song via PLAY MPE. But like a tidal wave stronger than a hurricane My love for you is just as true As it was the first day but sometimes it feels like chasing the wind trying to hold onto you Meghan (B. Miles, M. Bollea Rowe) “Meghan” exposes the difficulties Miles and his wife Meghan have experienced over the last decade. Brecken notes, “It encompasses all the pain, emotion and undying love that I have for her. Those are my tears on the table and my heart on the floor.” When the strictures of the Covid-19 pandemic forced him home from the road, the couple realized they had to reconnect or let go. “Between my artist career, a part-time job and a city touring business in Milwaukee, we were like two ships passing in the night,” Brecken reflects. “Add a toddler to the mix and we just got lost.” The song is his plea to her to hang on through life’s storms and not give up on their life together. Miles’ longing and heartbreak can be heard in every line, and the crisp recording values make every perfectly placed note count. Produced by Larry Beaird (Dolly Parton, Billy Dean, Mark O’Connor), the song was written by hitmaker Melissa Bollea Rowe and Miles. “It's the true emotion Brecken brings to the vocal performance - along with Goose Gossett on harmonies and the outstanding musicianship of all the players - that take this song over the top,” notes Beaird. Bollea Rowe recalls the day the song was written, "It was an organically beautiful idea that showed up effortlessly for us as we sat down to write. I'm really proud of this one." Fans will have the opportunity to hear the new single live at these upcoming shows: 9/17 Kaiser's Pizza - Gurnee, Illinois 9/18 Fatmans - Gurnee, Illinois 9/20 Coins Sports Bar - Kenosha, Wisconsin 9/27 Cottage Tap - Gages Lake, Illinois 10/10 Cellar Bar - Oak Creek, Wisconsin 10/11 Jesse Oaks - Gages Lake, Illinois 10/30 Fatmans - Gurnee, Illinois ABOUT BRECKEN Singer/songwriter Brecken Miles has shared the stage with Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Luke Combs, Cam, Blake Shelton, Phil Vassar, Big & Rich, Justin Moore, and others. His far-reaching musical influences include Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and James Taylor.

Music runs in the family: his father is a musician, and Miles followed that tradition, picking up his first guitar at the age of 10. He was raised in the small town of Colgate, Wisconsin where The Eagles, James Taylor, Springsteen, and AC/DC ruled the household airwaves. In 2008, Brecken became the front man/lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the popular Milwaukee-based band Bella Cain, performing over 200 shows a year until leaving the group in 2014. Miles has since gone solo and signed an exclusive publishing deal with Rhyme Partners Music Publishing. A top-10 finalist in the 2018 Nash Next Competition, he has enjoyed two Top 50 chart singles, "The Anchor," "I'm Good With That," and the radio-friendly “Liar Out Of Me.” Brecken is a devoted spokesperson for Generations Against Bullying, a Milwaukee-based charity for which he wrote “God Loves,” the organization’s theme song. In his spare time he loves fishing, hunting and camping with his family. Keep up with Brecken on his socials: www.breckenmiles.com Facebook Twitter: @breckenmiles Instagram: @breckenmiles # # #
