I guess traffic on this site is very low these days b/c there used to be pages and pages of comments. Where is everyone! This is a great story!

Well, the way I look at it is this way...some of us have treasure to share, some of us have talent, and some of us have time! So, just giving in any of those ways is good, don't you think? Like the fleece...what a wonderful thing you're doing and Lourie for the sewing work she does.

What a super guy that Brayden is! Too bad Vick couldn't meet him or at least see the heart he has for animals. God bless you and the work you are doing for those poor dogs!

Maybe Michael Vick should have to donate part of his salary and do community service by working with animals who have been abused. He's probably already rich again, he can afford it.

I think when setting goals it is a good policy to set goals that can be achieved! When you surpass them as he has, it's even better! :)

I am beginning to believe that zootoo has a skeleton crew (no pun Jess & Jackie). Take the Pick of the Litter for instance. It is supposed to be weekly but since it was introduced, there have only been 2 Pick of the Litter posts.

There are a couple of reasons I feel this way. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Well, I think that there are many companies that operate that way nowadays but, considering what you said, I pretty sure you're right. I sent Gavin a message days ago and I still haven't heard from him.

Thank You ZOOTOO and Haley for this timely update. I can't say enough about Brayden.....what a terrific guy. Congrats on your " personal best ". Brayden is the type of person that one wants for a role model NOT the dog fighters.

I got an email about how life was different when we were coming up. It saddens me to think about the poor ppl who are raising children in this god forsaken world we live in. Life's too short in my mind to worry about all that bad stuff though...I prefer to laugh!
