Today we hosted a wonderful crew from WMUR, the big TV station in Manchester, New Hampshire that is an ABC affiliate. They were here to do a feature story for WMUR's popular magazine show, New Hampshire Chronicle. We spent several hours introducing the producer, Mary-Paige, and the videographer, Jason, to our "pampered guests," and then towards the end we did a sit-down interview in the front yard. Kate (who was also interviewed for the story!) was kind enough to take some photos so I could post one on the blog.
The animals in the photo above are blind Sophie on the left (who had just had a tummy rub from Mary-Paige in the chair), Daisy next to Alayne, blind Widget sitting between Alayne's legs, and blind Fuzzy with me.
We don't have an air-date yet for the story, but they will let us know well ahead of time and we'll get it announced on the blog. They also post the stories for viewing on the Chronicle's webpage I linked to above, so it should be available online the day after it airs on TV.
