Rachael and Sahara on Animal Planet's PETS 101 Tonight!

I'm So Excited!
I have to type in RED!
To ALERT you!
To this:
      Tonight, our friend Rachael, who runs Sydney's Legacy, an animal education program, will appear on Animal Planet's Pets 101.  Rachael's segment, titled So Creepy Its Cute, will be featured on PETS 101, Season 2, Episode 1. In most markets it will air at 8:00 p.m. tonight, but please check your local listings because here in our market Episode 2 will air at that time. 
     The following announcement appeared on our DirecTV blurb: Which garden guest can live to be 100 years old; can you teach a gold fish to play music, etc. Rachael's segment may be toward the end of the show. I am thrilled for her and I hope you will decide to watch her segment of the show -- I would love for you to see and hear Rachael as she teaches the kids about creepy, but cute animals. 
The class that appears in the show.
     Those of you who have read my blog for some time, know how much I care about Rachael who is such an animal lover and wonderful speaker and educator. I know many of you, my blogger friends, are not into animals like Sahara, Rachael's 14 ft albino Burmese Python. Many people are not, but Rachael is teaching that all animals are relevant in the ecosystem. That it is not, for example, a good idea to adopt a cute little snake of a few inches that will grow to Sahara's size and more and then dump it in the Everglades or some other place, where it, not being native to the environment, will cause havoc. 
Boys and girls alike are thrilled to meet Sahara, and

to pet and interact with this most gentle of the larger snakes.

  1. Hi Inger,
    Sorry we can't watch it as we have not TV. Looks to be very interesting however.

  2. That's awesome but the big snake scares me; but look at those kids, no fear!

  3. Would tune in but we're out tonight for a holiday party. Maybe there will be a re-run later???

  4. I'll be out, but I WILL record it!

  5. I'm glad Rachael has the opportunity to educate on the dangers of keeping exotic pets.
    All creatures are relevant, in their proper environment!

  6. that is wonderful!! i can feel the excitement through here on my end! thanks for checking in on my blog during my absence. glad to see you're up and running and all seems well! hope the Christmas spirit is in the air for you.

  7. Go, Rachael! She's getting the word out, isn't she? Her passion is contagious!

  8. Hey Inger - THANK YOU so much for your plug for the episode with our segment! Your continued support of Sydney's Legacy (and me) means the world to us! I just watched the show and I felt they did a good job of editing 3 hours of footage into the 5 or so minutes of show time that we were given. I hope that everyone that tuned in, enjoyed it. And, yes, it will air over and over, like all of the other APL shows, so if you missed it, you'll have plenty of more opportunities to catch it. Thanks again, Inger!!
    - Much Love, Rachael, Sahara and the rest of the gang

  9. Hi Inger and Rachel .. what you're doing is brilliant - and reminding us all that each 'critter' is the same as us 'human critters' we're all interlinked.

    I was staggered to watch a programme on the pythons in the Everglades - they're evolving to their new environment very very quickly ..their lungs have changed dramatically ... can't exactly remember what it was - and now wish I'd made notes .. because it keeps coming up!

    So essential we all realise we're one .. thanks and cheers to you both - Hilary

  10. Thank you so much for sharing, Inger. We watch APL alot, so I'm sure I'll be able to catch this episode. :)

    Big hugs to your puppies, hubby and you this morning. xoxo

  11. We watched it here and thought they did a good job too, just wish it was longer. Like an hour just for Rachael and her message of compassion for all animals, which is the way she lives her life.

  12. Dear Inger,
    Thanks for sharing all this good news with us and for telling us about this animal education group. The work they do is inspiring.

    I'm sorry I couldn't view the show. I have only very basic cable--mostly just the local channels--and so don't get Animal Planet.

    Inger, I wanted you to know that several of your readers came over to my blog and read about Dulcy and ordered books. So thank you, my friend, for sharing with others your great enthusiasm about her book and for posting twice about her.


  13. Excellent! I wish I would have read this last Saturday. What a great thing Sydney's Legacy is.

    Have a good week, Inger. :)


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
