Talking to dogs, fishing for rats
(Because of problems with the links when it was first posted, this entry is being reposted. For other audio features, visit our “Pawedcast” page.)
One talks to dogs (and hears them talk back). One wrangles dolphins. And another was an integral part of bringing the sport of rat fishing to Baltimore.
Just a typical Baltimore evening — though one you might have missed if you weren’t at Centerstage for September’s installment of the Stoop Storytelling series.
The night’s focus was “Animal Tales,” and I was lucky enough to be one of those to spin one, “Ten Things My Dog Taught Me About Humans.”
Now the whole evening — seven storytellers, and three more from the audience — can be heard online at the Stoop Storytelling website.
From animal communicator Terri Diener, who once assisted me in delving into my dog’s past (see part six), to Chuck Ochlech (pictured above), tournament organizer for the Baltimore Association of Rat Fishermen (BARF), the evening was full of engaging tales.
You can find the full list of storytellers, and the audio versions of their stories here.
They’ll also have a permanent home here on ohmidog! Just click on “Pawedcast,” our new page that will serve as a home for audio features.
