Bob Odenkirk, an Emmy Award-winning comedy writer, producer, actor and New York Times bestselling author, says he knows the secret to happiness, and it's waiting for you at your local animal shelter. Bob has numerous credentials, including his acclaimed role in the hit drama "Breaking Bad," and now as the title character in AMC's "Better Call Saul." He has earned two Critics' Choice Television Awards, along with Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG award nominations for his work on "Better Call Saul." In recognition of his work on "Saturday Night Live," Bob garnered an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Writing in a Variety or Music Program" in 1989. The "Motivational Speaker" sketch he wrote for his friend Chris Farley, which originated at Second City in Chicago, was recently named by Rolling Stone magazine as the best SNL sketch of all time. In 1993, Bob earned another Emmy Award for writing on "The Ben Stiller Show."

Olive is the best dog ever devised. I challenge you to find a better one. Go, now, today, to a shelter ... and hang out a bit. You will find the dog for you, as my wife and daughter did, finding Olive for our family. Our kids are teenagers, my wife and I both work, and Olive's happy energy and sociability greatly lowers the stress level in our busy home. She's magic. Save a shelter pet; they can save you, too.
