Did you know that 1 out of 3 dogs over the age of 10 will most likely develop cancer?  Shawn will meet a veterinary oncologist who diagnoses and treats pets with cancer. Then Gracey will talk to a man who makes his living as a freelance drummer. She especially enjoyed his drum solo – I think you will, too! And if you’re into reptiles, you won’t want to miss Shawn’s interview with a zookeeper who takes care of them.  Not sure I’d be comfortable getting as close to the gators as she does!
