Hi Friends,

‘Dogs never bite me. Just humans.’ – Marilyn Monroe




As I mention in my keynote, ‘ Relieving Stress with Humour’, animals are amazing way to relieve stress. Just owning a dog can increase your chance of surviving a heart attack by five times!
This time, it’s our turn to open our hearts and give back to all those creatures- great and small- who have enriched our lives.


If you are in the Toronto area, please join me for our very first Dogstarz  Comedy Fundraising Gala ,August 14th 2014. Tickets are available at http://dogstarz.ca/product/tickets/  Proceeds to benefit the Toronto Humane Society.
