Parker4241 Cottman AvenuePhiladelphia, PA 19135rebelslair@aol.comUpdate on Pat SantiAs most of you know, Pat Santi, ourrecently retired secretary, has been ill and,after a stay in the hospital, she is currentlyrecuperating in an acute care facility.While she has her laptop and phone, shedoes not seem to feel like talking on thephone. So, all my updates are from one ofher kennel partners, located in Tennessee,who is caring for Pat’s dogs.At least for the present, there does notseem to be a great deal of change in hercondition. As many of us know, Pat hassuffered from multiple chronic medicalissues, and she is currently being weaned offdialysis. The facility is evaluating moving herto another location, depending on the needfor dialysis.For the present time, her address remainsPat Santi, Room 3405B, LifeCare Hospitalsof Chester County, 400 E. Marshall St., WestChester, PA 19380. I have asked her kennelpartner to let me know if and when thiscontact information changes.In the meantime, she is very pleased toreceive snail mail cards and notes so pleaseconsider dropping her a line periodically soshe knows she has not been forgotten.Thoughts for the New YearAs it seems nobody has decided to run asan individual or pull together a slate ofofficers for the coming election, the slateoriginally recommended by the Board ofGovernors will be elected/re-elected. Thatwill be Ida Estep, President; Elaine Gewirtz,Vice-President; Susan Ewing, Secretary;ruff DRAFTS Winter 2015 page 2Marsha Pugh, Treasurer; and CarmenBattaglia, Past President. The new Board ofGovernors members will be Robert H.McKowen and Caroline Coile.We really want to expand memberparticipation in DWAA but we needmembers to identify themselves and theirinterests. The officers and Board ofGovernors are willing to put in a lot ofvolunteer time but we cannot do it all. I know Ihave mentioned this before but the responsehas been somewhat underwhelming and Iam hoping more folks will step up and sharetheir time and ideas.Several areas we have identified are (1)an internet review of what servicesprofessional groups similar to DWAA offertheir members and in which of these ourmembers would be interested; (2) moreoutreach to companies producingdog-related products and how we can betterrelate to them to the benefit of all; (3) morework on increasing new member outreach;and (4) any other areas in which membersexpress interest.Please do think about these areas andconsider where your interests lie and whereyou can help. We all want DWAA to growand be of more service to its members butthis will require member effort, and the moremember participation, the less time eachmember will have to spend.Otherwise, we all hope everybody had aMerry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, aGood Kwanza, or whatever Season’sGreetings apply plus wish you a very HappyNew Year.

Chris invites dog owners and lovers to connect with himon LinkedIn at Chris P. Janelli.Dawn TaylorI began to write about pugswhen I adopted one from ano-kill shelter. I adopted her tohelp keep my husbandcompany while I was out. I hadno idea what that little pug coulddo for him and me. With her andthe love she showed us, I beganto work with Pug rescues to helpothers experience the love anddevotion from pugs. As I workedwith them so many questionsand concerns came up that I wanted to be able to help, so I threwmyself into researching the breed, the pet food industry, health forpets, and the best toys for specific breeds. With that I began to writeso others could learn what I learned without doing the research. Ourlittle pug opened a new world to writing and friendships. With myresearch I also learned the potential of her being a service dog so wewent down that path. Our little pug became a hearing/PostTraumatic Stress Disorder Service Dog for my husband. He is aveteran and when he retired was having problems with his hearingand dealing with the PTSD. My next venture was to work and helpothers realize the potential each and every dog has in order tobecome a service dog, due to dedication, no matter the size. Hence,my articles promoting Service Dogs and our Veterans. I still currentlywrite my column on pugs, writing for pug groups as far away as theUnited Kingdom, blogging for pug sites, write articles for differentmagazines/books on pugs and/or service dogs, and in the processof working on my first book to help others understand Veterans andService Dogs.Cathy WeselbyCathy grew upreadingJamesHerriot’s All CreaturesGreat and Small anddreamt of becominga veterinarian.
