Award-winning radio show host Bruce Zeman, and his canine side-kick Hobbes, travel around the nation promoting anti-bullying efforts, along with the themes of kindness, empathy, compassion, tolerance and kindness through their book, “Hobbes Goes Home.” Since becoming the nation’s only human / canine morning show duo, Bruce & Hobbes have worked tirelessly to make Vermont a better place. In 2010, and again in 2014, the Vermont Legislature recognized “The Wake-Up Crew with Bruce & Hobbes” with resolutions honoring them for their community service work, and dedication to helping animals. At the 2010 ceremony, Hobbes made headlines, becoming the only canine in Vermont history allowed on the floor of the Vermont House of Representatives to receive his award. 

Since 2009, Bruce & Hobbes have appeared at events across the nation on issues such as anti-bullying efforts, anti-domestic violence efforts, empathy, compassion, inclusion, tolerance, respect, determination, empowerment, team-building & perseverance. Although Bruce does most of the speaking (Hobbes does contribute, from time-to-time), he is a powerful, compassionate, speaker who draws on his 30+ years of experience working with animals and people of all ages to make the world a more compassionate place.
