At the University of Kentucky, the puppies of Wildcat Service Dogs learn to become assistance dogs for individuals facing mobility challenges; in Bowling Green, a look at the Corvette production assembly line; and Doug experiences a mode of travel from America’s earlier days, aboard a steamboat on the Ohio River.
Wildcat Service Dogs
Some University of Kentucky students are taking on the role of teachers, and puppies are their pupils in the Wildcat Service Dog program. Wildcat Service Dogs are learning to assist those who have diabetes, autism, mobility impairments, or psychiatric problems.
On the Assembly Line at Corvette
The first Corvettes were built in 1953, and in 1981 the Bowling Green plant became the exclusive manufacturer of the iconic sports car. About 1,000 employees work here. Kai Spande, plant manager, said the C-7, the seventh generation Corvette, was introduced in 2015.
Steamboat Travel on the American Queen
The American Queen is the largest steamboat ever built, and the only one in America offering overnight accommodations. Kentucky Life host Doug Flynn went aboard in Henderson to get a taste of steamboat travel.
