"Hope you have loads of your great book in stock...just told 150 folks in Toronto, 60 in Rochester,MN and about 150 in Pittsburgh to order it post haste. (by the case for the rescues & shelters)." Sarah Kalnajs
"Just love to tell people when they do a terrific job. This is a great
site for people who are dealing with nervous, shy or fearful dogs. I
am glad there is a lot of information on the site instead of just ads.
Hopefully, it will help keep a few lucky dogs from being
institutionalized! I know this site requires a lot of work! Thanks" J.
