Hope everything works out.
As soon as I logged on to Ng i saw your "Save Blizzard" message on the artist news thing. I read your entry and it was very sad to hear what happened to your dog. I wish I could donate a little money but I'm sort of strapped for cash, plus I dont have a credit card. I hope a lot of people will pitch in some cash for you dude.
And good luck on your future animations.
