With each story of success comes the stories of endless hours of hard work and dedicated people who seem to "drop everything" to address the threat at hand. Thank goodness for those people. For those of you who feel you can not just "drop everything" - there is work for you to do too. Every little action helps. Tell your friends about your plight. Write letters; SEND MONEY to organization who are acting on your behalf. Tell all of the people who contact you about dogs that the precious resource of knowledgeable dog people is at stake. The list of actions you can take is endless.
The most important thing you can do, is read each success story looking for "lessons"- HOW did they manage to succeed. We can be successful, it just takes hard work and cooperation.
