Plot Synopsis

CBS NEWS SUNDAY MORNING is a news broadcast reviewing events of the preceding week, celebrating human accomplishments and achievements and journeying through the world of fine art, music, nature, sports, science and Americana. During the 2012-2013 season, the show's 33rd, CBS SUNDAY MORNING aired interviews with: Rachel Robinson, the wife of Jackie Robinson, who spoke with Susan Spencer about the upcoming film 42; fitness expert and reality competition TV show star Jillian Michaels, who spoke with Ben Tracy about how she finds it difficult to break into daytime TV because of her on-screen persona on THE BIGGEST LOSER; producer Mark Burnett talking about his new miniseries, THE BIBLE; and much more.
On Friday, November 27, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "The Pet Project," a new one-hour special. Anchored by Jane Pauley, this primetime special looks at many aspects of our passion for pets -- from viral videos online to the importance of the family pet, to a visit with Bindi Irwin and her family, who are carrying on the mission of their late father, the animal conservationist and "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, who died tragically in 2006.

For the past dozen years as actor Michael J. Fox has continued to battle Parkinson's disease, right alongside him has been his dog Gus. In his latest book, Fox calls Gus a "wonder dog." Fox talks emotionally about the importance Gus plays in his daily life in an interview with Lee Cowan.

"You know that no matter your situation, no matter what you feel, this animal is with you and is connected to you, and you feel," Fox tells Cowan. "It's a force multiplier."

In his new book, No Time Like The Future, An Optimist Considers Mortality, Fox writes that he didn't rescue Gus, but one can argue Gus rescued him. The dog has been a constant companion, especially during Fox's latest medical issues. Two years ago, Fox had a tumor removed from his spinal cord, forcing him to relearn how to walk. When he returned home in a wheelchair, Gus was there waiting.

"He kind of circles the wheelchair with this low kind of woof woof, woof woof, and sat in front of the wheelchair right in front of me, and looked at me, and I said, it's going to be okay," Fox says.

Gus knows there's something different about him now, Fox says.

"Your instinct when you have a chronic illness is to sometimes isolate and make your world as small as possible so you don't have much to deal with, but a dog will open you up," Fox tells Cowan.
