Pure Comfort w/ Pearson Marx
About The Episode
Growing up in New York City, Pearson Marx’s family had golden retrievers had family dogs. Her grandfather also lived on a big property north of the city and had tons of dogs.
As an adult, a call from her mother got her to turn on the TV one night to watch a movie - but she instead found herself fixed on a dog infomercial. It ended up leading to her first dog as an adult, one of many more to come.
Her journey with personal dogs included overcoming her initial stigma of pit bulls to then love them.
The furry soulmate of her life, Cleo, became important during a particularly tough point in her life. When her husband was sick, Pearson registered her as a therapy dog. Just bringing Cleo there gave her the strength to go to the hospital, and not only did she give Pearson strength, but also a light to everyone else in the hospital.
Also a writer, Pearson has included rescue dogs in her novel and Cleo was right there by her side while she was writing it. She believes dogs have a special relationship to humans that is unlike any other bond between beings.
