Here's a great article by the Psychic, Linda Lauren, about  Vito and Dogland.  I am posting it here, and will give a link at the end. Meet The Dogfather of Dogland: A Visit with Vitolo Rossini Article by Linda Lauren  SL Enquirer 9/18/13 There is something about the virtual community of Second Life  that makes you want to mirror your everyday real life.  People do  that by creating avatars to look like themselves, or as much like  themselves as technically possible.  Admittedly, we have a  propensity to make ourselves more anatomically pleasing by taking  off or putting on the few pounds we would like to on our real life  scale.  But when it comes to the animal kingdom, the accuracy is more  true to life and you can find that “life” by visiting The Dogfather (Vitolo Rossini) at Dogland Park: (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Rhoda/155/138/30) Vito’s story is an inspiring one.  He came to SL after awakening  from a coma.  Being here, he grew rapidly and decided to start a  group to help other TBI survivors. He learned that dogs were a  great tool to use to focus attention, and this made him begin  supporting all makes of virtual dogs at Dogland.            In the early days, Vito devoted his time to making free supplies  and getting low cost relocated dogs for people.  In spite of harassment  by opposition, he managed to build a low cost virtual dog that operates  on a drop down menu.  The price is right and he has one of best  looking dogs in SL.   http://doglanddogs.yolasite.com Dogland has help sites ( ie: http://virtualdogtalk.yolasite.com) and networks ie: (http://doglandpark.ning.com)   There are 14 Dogland blogs and there is a Dogland Dog Owners  group on 22 social networks. The faith in Dogland was so strong that when parts of it were for  sale at exorbitant prices, an administrator at a local  Animal Protection Agency believed so much in their goals that  they cosigned an RL loan for them.              Since then Dogland chose to support the noble work of a local faction  of a national organization: “Humane Society of Southern Arizona.” In  this way, they can see donations directly at work. Every Wednesday for five straight years, owners of all makes of  virtual dog have come to classes and stayed as long as five hours to  hear about working with the different makes of Second Life dog.
