"r" Due to his increasing popularity and several suggestions from readers (and after much negotiating on our part with his huge salary demands), our friend Freeway has consented to try to answer readers' questions concerning him or any of our little four-legged friends. You can email your questions to to the attention of Freeway. Don't forget folks, Freeway is not a vet, so please keep the questions light-hearted! Thanks. The many donations received during the "Thanksgiving Pet Food Drive." "Do you see that smile on my face? My tail is Wagging like crazy." I am so happy that our "Thanksgiving Pet Food Drive" was a SUCCESS. I do not know how to THANK EVERYONE that took the time and effort to drop off their donations, food for the dogs and cats as well as leashes; toys; treats; beds; collars, etc., at the Post- Gazette. We went to the shel- ter at the Angell Memorial hospital Kelly (a staff mem- ber) accepted the dona- tions with a smile of appre- ciation, she was amazed at how thoughtful everyone had been especially during this difficult time that so many are out of work and yet they thought of the pets. Please note that anything they cannot use at the shel- ter will be given to those that are less fortune that have pets. The food drive was so successful I am going to do it again next year. Are you with me? Yes! Yes! On that note, a special "thank you" to my friend Joan at the Post-Gazette that helped me organize this fundraiser and to my friend Louie who drove us. We should ALL be happy we made less fortunate pets happy for the holiday. I would also like to thank the follow- ing for their generous dona- tions: Pauline, Danielle, Cheryl, Donna, Angela, Jenna, Tim, Antonietta, A_ntonino, C.C., Chef Coyne and others. While I am writing this column, I'd like to mention also the wonderful article that was written by Bryan Golden who wrote Thanks- giving: So much to be thank- ful in the November 18, 2011 edition of the Post-Gazette. A wonderful, heartfelt story that touched my heart because Thanksgiving is my favorite special holiday of all. The article was just great Bryan, thank you so much. That's all for now!
