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 &/or who volunteer at an animal shelter on a consistent basis. On a personal level, he volunteers with dogs at an animal shelter on an ongoing basis. 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 & Tug's tragic passing. Groups that care about animals (i.e. Wisconsin Humane Society, Kalamazoo Humane Society, Bark University) have ordered copies of the book or book posters for students or others in their community. 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!
