Hello and welcome to my website! For those of you who don't know, "Jack Specific" is a play on the name of the toy company who currently has the WWE action figure license, Jakks Pacific. As Jack Specific, for many years I wrote news and columns related to upcoming wrestling figure releases and maintained a very popular related community forum. After the shut down of the site that I worked for I then created my own website, Wrestlingfigs.com doing basically the same thing. The popularity of Wrestlingfigs.com and it's forums in just a very short time was much above and beyond my expectations, and after a couple of years as the popularity of wrestlingfigs.com continued to grow I realized the site needed to be taken to the next level which is something that I neither had the funding nor the expertise to do on my own. Ringside Collectibles came to the rescue taking over ownership and as promised took the site to the next level. To this day I continue to manage the Wrestlingfigs.com forums.
I am a proud Greyhound Adoption advocate where I, along with my family and other volunteers participate in weekly events to promote awareness and adopt out these loving and gentle pets to forever homes.
Feel free to drop me an email!

So my wife comes to me one day and says "I'm getting a Chinchilla!". Of course my standard answer is "NO!" She works at Petco and almost daily they are getting new small pets up for adoption. It's sad how many people just give up their pets like yesterday's news, but at least they're going to be someone's pet again with the expectations that the orphaned pets will go to a loving and caring family who will keep them forever... and such as the case with my so called "NO!" It's not like I did not like Chinchillas but we cannot take every pet that comes into the store although I'd like to. The Chinchillas are actually from a litter from one of the store Team Leads, Danielle, not really unwanted pets though.
So my wife has been whining about how she wants a cat and cannot get one because of the dogs. Although my dogs are 'Cat Safe' we would still be weary about bringing a cat back into the house after all this time. So her idea is to get the Chinchilla as a replacement for the cat she's always wanted since our cat Fluffy passed away. Not a bad effort as an excuse to get a Chinchilla! After bugging me until no end with the promise that she'll clean the cage I gave in. I even said to get another one so they will be paired because I read they do well in pairs and prefer it that way.
We called Danielle and told her to bring in two Chins tomorrow to Petco. That night we went out and got all the supplies including a cage. Thankfully just about everything we got was on clearance. We even got another cage to go on top of the one we already purchased.
Appropriately we named them Fluffy and Midnight after our two cats that have since passed on. They seem to be very happy in their new home. They most definitely enjoy each other's company and just love to run and hop around the room. They really love getting dust baths... Oh and they enjoy eating and POOPING too!
New Photo Gallery!

It took me a good while to customize and get it just right to match my website especially being that my time is so limited and the customizing was a little bit on the technical side. I think it turned out pretty decent though. I'll be adding more features in the future and more new pictures as well.
Actually the whole adding a newly improved photo album was not on my list of things to do. This was due to me having to move the site to a new hosting company. I'd like to thank Gary Gordon of Gary M Gordon LLC for hosting my website for the last couple of years. Gary does not even host personal sites but he did me a favor and has been so good to me. Unfortunately Gary had to move all his websites to new servers so I went on my own at that point. For anyone looking to have their company's website hosted and handled by a great service and wonderful person, please check out Gary M Gordon LLC!

Jay Demore, GM of Petco Cinnaminson headed up planning the run, along with the Petco crew & PGC crews working hand in hand we were able to gather over $500 in donations! Of course this would not have been possible without the motorcycle riders themselves trekking South Jersey for a greyt cause. Also on hand was Natural Balance providing samples and give-aways, and Wawa who came by with some very tasty lunch.
Oh yeah, and by the way, check me out in the Burlington County Times! We'll it's nothing about me really, just the full newspaper article with pictures on the wonderful day we had during our Motorcycle Rally. The full article can be found by clicking HERE!
It's Not Easy to Let Go

Like Winchester, Gracie was a bounce-back from a prior home and family. The other family had problems with Gracie marking in the house. We think it's because Gracie needs another dog to be around and that she suffers from separation anxiety of sorts. Of the four weeks at our home she has not once attempted to urinate in the house and thus that seemed to confirm our suspicion.
As we awaited Gracie finding the perfect home we fell more and more in love with her. What's not to love when a dog is so sweet, so loving and so well behaved? Just as we thought the perfect home was right here in our home we got a phone call asking if Gracie is still available. We did not even know. We want to keep her but reality set in. With already having 6 dogs, financially this was not feasible for us. On top of that we regularly foster and dog sit and having so many dogs in our small house just gets crowded. As much as Greyhounds are very easy to maintain both cost wise and keep wise, the numbers do add up. We had to think with our heads and not with our hearts.
There is no doubt in my mind that Gracie is going to a very loving family and good home and that's really all that matters and that is why we do what we do. This family has another Greyhound which was adopted by our Greyhound adoption group, the Philadelphia Greyhound Connection, and they have another dog as well. Gracie will be happy there and she'll be loved and well cared for.
If we thought of our own emotions first I feel that we would be selfish not only for Gracie but our own dogs, future fosters and borders as well. We need to do what is right and what is realistic as difficult as that may seem. Gracie will always hold a special place in our hearts.

So I figured what better way to start things off right for the New Year than to redesign the site from the ground up. You may noticed the site looks just a little different but still basically the same for the most part. The most important thing though is it formats correctly in every size and every browser (at least I hope it does!). As you also may have noticed, some the other pages are still the same format as before. I will redo those to the new format once I know this page is fully flaw-free and more importantly when I have time! The only page that will be a bit difficult to redo is the Guestbook. The others should be a breeze though. My goal is to have them all done by the New Year. Stay tuned for regular updates after Jan. 1st!

Among one of the most exciting things that come about in my experiences with our wonderful Greyhound adoption organization is the arrival of a new batch of Greyhounds from the tracks...
