Karen Golden lives in the Dallas, Texas area with her husband Richard and today she shares three stories - Walker, her first dog, along with Trivette, and Sierra, who amazingly survived the distemper virus when they adopted him five years ago.
We quote Karen Golden’s words as the title of today’s episode. You Know Your Dog. You will hear why during our interview.

Dr. Richard Golden is Professor of Cognitive Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. He also hosts the podcast, “Learning Machines 101.”
Walker was not named after Chuck Norris's title character, Cordell Walker, in the television series, “Walker, Texas Ranger.” Ironically, Trivette was named after Walker’s partner, James Trivette, from the same show.
