PLPA To Honor Pet Grief Therapy Dogs

Good Monday Morning!  As I look at the very last page in my Daytimer (yep, I'm still using paper!) my schedule continues to remind me that our next PLPA Conference is just around the corner!  My, my, my,... where does the time go?

As we move forward with our planning for this fabulous gathering, we would like to take a moment to announce a new program of recognition - "Honoring our Grief Therapy Dogs."  Therefore, we would like to begin to compile all of the dogs that are working within our funeral homes, cemeteries, and pet loss operations.  This roster will include a photo of the dog and a brief bio.  Furthermore, for future conferences, we will have a special tribute to those dogs who have died during the year.

If you have a dog that is a part of your team, forward a photo of the dog as well as a 200 word bio to  Please have your entries into me by March 1, 2011.

These dogs and the work they do is amazing.  It's with great honor that we compile this roster and acknowledge those who selflessly give their unconditional love to our grieving families.

If you have questions about this project, don't hesitate to contact me!  Thanks - I so look forward to seeing all of the four-legged team members and their bios.  But more importantly, giving them the honor and recognition they so deserve!
