Because of my interest in the law, PR, advertising, charity status, and on-line appeals, I was especially drawn to Willy’s tale and posted a comment on Mom Knows It All.com.  I wanted to share it with my readers.  CAFRA (enforced by the FTC and state attorneys general since December, 2016) protects social media posts about consumer evaluations of company service, uploaded photos, videos, etc. It is unlawful to threaten any writer posting an honest review. With this said, in order to put this tragic situation into proper perspective, much must be considered. #1 Willy is under continued veterinary care as […]

It is your time now; you don’t have to listen. This is your life so live it the […]
