Just a friendly safety message here...
For those who will respond...please do NOT post your first and last name on the open forum.
As you might imagine, there are safety concerns with having your information out for the whole internet world to see. If you're interested in participating, and I do hope you are because this sounds interesting, please please please
do not use your full name.
As the OP wisely mentioned, make up your last name
I hope you don't mind ilovepets
but we are very precious about the safety of our members here on HF.
Good luck in your research!
