This is one special lady. Her name is Anastasia Fontaines and she’s my friend. This whole month Mom Peep and I have been working on getting to 30 reviews on Amazon for the CHARLIE BEAR book. Amazon is where everyone goes to shop so they’re kind of a big thing in the world. In fact, just their name is intimidating!
Anyway, my sweet friend Anastasia tried to post a review. Amazon wouldn’t let her. Said something about her not purchasing at all through them, but she has (who hasn’t?). Anyway, then Mom Peep tried to get her review posted and it went up on the site…Hooray! And then they took it down. What’s up with that? Anyway, this is not a bash-fest on Amazon, even though they did pull a trick on us, it’s a LOVE FEST on Anastasia.
She’s my treat, just like the rest of you wonderful people out there who have bought and read CHARLIE BEAR and who have also written a review. THANK YOU!
So in honor of all of you who have taken the time to write a review, a goodie bag of treats is going out in the next week. Watch for it. And here is beautiful Anastasia’s review. You won’t find it on Amazon, but you can read it here:
5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Lives One Pet at a Time, October 28, 2012

I’m very devoted to protecting & finding our furry friends loving homes, so it was with joy that I read the story about this adorable rescue dog full of character & growing pains. CHARLIE BEAR reminded me that some shelter/adoption/rescue dogs come with issues, and this dog had his share though that did not deter B.J. and Roger from loving him. It wasn’t always easy for all of them in the beginning, including Charlie Bear in trying to adjust to a new lifestyle in his new home. We can only imagine what CB went through before B.J. and Roger took him in as family. Even though B.J. and Roger could have given up on him after he attacked their resident dog Rex, they worked with him to get over his issues. Most dogs who have been in a shelter or who have been rescued from the streets (or worse) just need time, patience, love, and training to make great family pets. Charlie Bear settled in to the tender touch of Roger and proved himself to be the cuddly teddy bear B.J. & Roger knew he could be with proper care and understanding. It’s a dream of mine to one day have a Rescue Ranch to help Cats and Dogs in need of a safe haven they can call home like in Charlie Bear’s case. They are pure love and deserve proper love, care and understanding. In the meantime, let’s save lives, one pet at a time in any way that we can. P.S. A reminder that it is Halloween and Black Cats in particular are targeted. Let’s keep them protected.
Wiggles and Woofs to all!
