My Vision DePAW is the key to my dream of helping dogs become more integrated into everyday life. Therefore, our attention is focused on education that inspired the “University” theme all those years ago when I started. We would like to offer more ongoing educational opportunities for both pet owners and pet professionals alike.  The more informed and equipped conscientious pet owners are, the more dog-friendly the community can become. We look forward to sharing all of our educational opportunities with you in the years to come! Thank you for all you’ve done as clients to help us grow. We hope you enjoy what the future brings!

Pawprints Left byYou ... You no longer greet me, As I walk throught the door. You're not there to make me smile. To make me laugh anymore. Life seems quiet without you. You were far more than a pet. You were a family member, a friend,

... a

loving soul ...I 'll never forget.

It will take time to heal - For the silence to go away. I still listen for you. And miss you every day. You were such a great companion, constant, loyal and true. My heart will always wear,

the pawprints left by you .
