Each episode explores the world of dog care and companionship. Dog Words is presented by Rosie Fund, a charitable foundation with the mission to provide humans with the resources and education they need to give senior and harder-to-adopt dogs a better life. “We save each other.” is the motto of Rosie Fund which simply means, “The more we do for dogs, the more they do for us, and they already do a lot.”
