I'm sure some of you have heard about the huge oil spill down south in the gulf right? Well just got an interesting newsletter somewhat related to this. I think the timing of it is perfect considering some dogs (just like Junior) are blowing their coats right now.

Matter of Trust, a non-profit ecological group, has been collecting hair from humans and animals to help with the recent oil spill. Apparently hair is very good in absorbing oil, and so it is used to help gather and keep oil that has been collected from spills. So if you get a chance this might be a good way to put the extra fur into good use! You can definitely start some sort of community drive to help collect more fur to help out with these oil spills.

Really? This is the first time I've heard about them doing this! Lol it was probably on TV in the news...but since I don't watch much TV I hadn't heard about it. Seems like a good idea, from what little I've heard, the oil spill is really bad...
