Newman, Woodward, and dog . . . back in '58

by winecountrydog

Big love woofs out to you, Joanne Woodward. Thanks for being a lifelong dog lover!

Everybuddy in the world knows why I'm posting Paul Newman's photo here today.

Joanne Woodward, Paul Newman, and their dog (1958)
We hope animal lovers will always remember that Paul Newman, along with daughter Nell Newman, chose to donate the charity money generated by sales of Newman's Own Organics pet food products to organizations that support animal well-being.

Sources this past year said that Paul Newman quietly turned over to charity the entire value of his ownership in Newman's Own. Over a two-year period in 2005 and 2006, the amount of his donations to Newman's Own Foundation Inc. is said to have been more than $100 million.

Imagine the pawsitive effect that Paul Leonard Newman (26 Jan. 1925 – 26 Sept. 2008) has had on our world.

Our sympathies to Ms. Nell, Ms. Joanne, and the entire Newman family.
