WOWEEEEE! What a party! What an ADVENTURE! The RUN DOG! RUN! book and Kickstarter launch was incredible. In all my excitement and due to technical difficulties we failed to show our Kickstarter Film on the big screen! We need your help to print RUN DOG! RUN! We are not asking for a handout! If we don't reach our funding goal you will not be charged! This is a win win opportunity for you to receive a high quality copy of RUN DOG! RUN! Consider this Kickstarter a pre-order. Click here to pledge!

Boy's quest for "Doggy Dollars" continues ... Here he thanks his first backer! A "Star," Stijn from the Netherlands, made a one dollar pledge for Isaac's puppy moments before our party started!

Our first friend to back us was JULIE BLOCK! Thank you Julie! We currently have 33 days to raise $15,000, with 8 backers and $821 raised! Thank you backers! We still have our work cut out for us.

Chandler Woods Charter Academy's gym was packed with many new and many familiar faces. I will admit I was surprised! I am so thankful to the many people who showed up to celebrate our story and play. Circumstances came up for some of you that kept you away. I understand! Thank you for trying! Here are a couple pictures from the presentation time.
