I’m working on expanding the Pack Mentality Blog effort with more posts on Twitter.

Some of the news items or other tidbits I run across on a daily basis will go directly to the Twitter page. Items that require an expanded post will continue to get top billing right here on the blog. It’s a system that is long overdue here.

I have already kicked off the process of posting a bit more on Twitter, but I hope to do so with a little more pace going forward.

Please spread the word to the fellow animal lovers in your circle of compassionate friends and relatives. My personal mission is to spread news about animal welfare and animal self-awareness and about compassion – to as many people as possible. I really appreciate your assistance.
