Meet the Crew - Emily

emilyName: Emily Length of time working here: Since September 2012

Do you have any pets?

I don't currently have any pets of my own but love spending time with my parents dog, Hannah (shih tzu x in picture).  I'm hoping to get a dog as soon as I move into a dog-friendly place :)


What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I volunteer with the Animal Humane Society and Audubon Minnesota. This summer most of my time is spent growing vegetables on my sister's farm, Belle Creek Gardens, near Cannon Falls. It's great to be able to work outdoors; at least when the weather cooperates!

What is your favorite part about working at PPP?

My favorite part about working at PPP is getting to know all the different dog breeds and of course the individual dogs - they all have such distinct personalities! I've always loved dogs but working at PPP has taught me more about them than any other experience. I also like working here because my coworkers and I are always able to have a fun time!

Funniest/Favorite PPP moment:

My favorite moment is probably anytime there were cupcakes in the break room :)

Walk for the Animals

Wow, what a morning!  There were over 8000 people that were at the Walk for the Animals today.  We saw so many of our dogs and customers.  Roxy was the greeter at our booth.  This was our 3rd year at this fun event.   A few things that we saw: 1- Monkey

1- Goat

3- Clowns

5- Pampered Pooch Employees walking the walk

1- bunny in a cage around a lady's neck

1- cat in wagon

3- ferrets

76 - dachshund's

A Big thanks to TopLine Canine for the samples that we were handing out and to Jennifer of Bits of Love Pet Massage for doing massages at our booth.


Luna has been spending the night in our hotel and today she was was hanging out in the Zen Den.  Luna does great in all of the rooms, but really wanted to rest and relax today.  Speaking of the Zen Den, look for one of the webcams to be moved tomorrow so you can see more of the room. Many of you were asking how Roxy did on her Canine Good Citizen test at the Animal Humane Society last night.  She passed with flying colors and we are so proud of her!  Next, we start her therapy dog training in a few weeks!

Hope everyone has a good night.
