We are excited that a reporter from CNN has picked up on this #ireport and is writing a feature on Good Boy Roy. Hopefully this will open more doors and help to get our story out to more people.
Here is part of that iReport. To see the full post CNN ireport
Good Boy Roy is a business simply of Hope. Hope for the future, for better things, and to make a difference somehow in the lives of others.
Good Boy Roy began with the hope to share fun and whimsical characters created and drawn by now 17 year old Zack Hix. The hope that this may be a means of someday allowing him to become self supporting while doing something that brings him joy, rather than becoming another statistic of an unemployable person with mental illness.
We have been so blessed by some amazing support from all over. The latest comes in the form of this up and coming Performing Group, The Lucki Gurlz!!! along with the Bomb Digz. Thanks for sending this great Shout out and support for Good Boy Roybrand and helping to follow a dream.
People ask, so I am telling, what is Good Boy Roy?
A new Dog food??? No
A dog training program?? No
Millions of families and children live as we do…in a life and home ruled by mental illness. We know the feeling of helplessness, hopelessness and searching for answers. For us, that is our son, Zack, now 17. Zack IS Good Boy Roy, the business and the brand. We are sharing our story through the designs and characters of the Good Boy Roy line. It is more than fun t-shirts, it is more than cute characters.
It is about hope, faith, love, determination and overcoming.
Find your gift, follow your dream. Never loose Hope

Again, in Zacks words:
he is the other stud, the sports dude, the sports fanatic and also gets the girls. Zman is Good Boy Roy’s BEST friend. Zman is funny, smooth talker, and all around good guy. His specialty sport is baseball, he is a baseball STAR.
Zman is a nickname we began calling Zack when he was just a baby, and it stuck. So, it is appropriate he create a character for, who else, HIM :)
Zman is Zman, here modeling in his ever so unique style.
After creating the original Zman character, he went on to create the Sports version, we call “Decisions, Decisions“, for obvious reasons.
