Greg has loved animals, real and imaginary, all of his life. As a child, his backyard had some jungle gym equipment including a climbing ladder that was in the form of a horse. That "horse" became one of his childhood "friends". His childhood best friend was his dog, Tug, who was tragically killed in a hit-&-run. Greg's foundation has funded college scholarships in Tug's honor for students who study humane animal care &/or assist animal shelters. Greg has volunteered extensively at an animal shelter, has fostered some special dogs & adopted one of them (Koala, featured here). He has written articles for many publications -- including an article about a veterinarian and another about the head of an animal shelter. The books based on Greg's story, The First Thirty and The Silhouette Man, include a focus on his bond with Tug. Animal shelters, adoption centers, dog groomers, humane societies & programs that combine reading & spending time with animals are among those who have ordered the books or book posters for students or adults in their communities.

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!
