Greg has loved animals all of his life -- especially dogs. His childhood best friend was his first dog, Tug, who was tragically killed by a hit-and-run driver. During his brief life and through his tragic passing, he taught Greg some valuable lessons about kindness & friendship. On the civic side, Greg's foundation has funded several college scholarships named after Tug -- for students who study humane animal care. On a personal level, he volunteers at an animal shelter. The books based on Greg's story, The First Thirty and The Silhouette Man, include a chapter about his close bond with Tug & the lifelong lessons that grew out of that friendship. The groups that have used the books internally or externally include the Wisconsin Humane Society & Kalamazoo Humane Society. You can scroll through the slide show (below) that starts with a picture of Greg & Tug when they were little as well as some of the other 'friends' he has made from the animal kingdom -- including a picture from the memorable day at the White House when Greg walked President Clinton's dog, Buddy, around the West Wing. You also can watch a fun You Tube video (beneath the photo gallery), with a 25 second video featuring Greg's little pal, Mojito, learning to 'swim'.

Note: Please look in your local community for places where you can rescue & adopt dogs. They deserve homes where they will be shown as much love as they will show those who care for them!
