Before his Blue Dog days, I filled my home with his Acadian prints. My Dad will tell you story after story about being punished for speaking French in school and I loved the way George depicted those days in South Louisiana. I will walk my hall and into my bedroom and blow a kiss to all nine of them this evening. An amazing man... with an amazing story... who fought a hard fight and won today. Rest in peace George. That your Blue Dog inspired and moved you into another phase of fame is amazing. Dogs and people are amazing like that.
I heard a story about an adult putting a young lady on the spot by asking personal questions that have nothing to do with what she does for the young lady and are frankly - no business of hers. You hear so much (and frankly sometimes see) how children are disrespectful to adults. Although I have never parented I would think it would but be a huge challenge to teach respect even when the child knows they are being disrespected yet still they remain respectful. I have to hand it to Mom and Dad in this situation... they raised a young lady who knows how to stand up for herself and keep respect top of mind. I have never met her but I feel so proud to know her. I hope that she realizes that pushing back will make her life a little less uncomfortable but will make those "behind" her... not have to experience the immaturity of this "adult". I think when a young person/child pushes back they think it is only for them but I don't think they realize the number of those that they will save from the wrath of the adult. She took care of herself... and equally as important - she will take care of those who this "adult" could potentially put in the same position. Perhaps those little ones are not as confident to respectfully push back. Nothing like a strong young lady who takes matters into her own hand - respectfully. Viva her Mom & Dad... Viva her courage! I digress...

New Orleans Pet Care - Lagniappe
A few years ago, one of my team members suggested that we add a permanent blog to our web site. As you may know, we do have an interactive Emergency Page that we use during Hurricane Season if necessary.
This sounded like a fantastic way to share information, ideas, photographs, stories, etc!
I started working on it just before Remy was diagnosed with cancer... and on March 27, 2008 (two months after he died) I started working on it again.
Nicole Douget Owner & Operator New Orleans Pet Care
I love this company with all that I have... And we give it our all. This is my passion, not my hobby... Remy's legacy leads me to continue our work here... not only with excellent pet care but it also affords me the opportunity to support the rescue/transport organizations that are so important to me. We will continue to differentiate ourselves by making sure we have a full team... ready to go everyday. We will never take vacation, we are 24/7, 365 days... we will be there when you can't. We love them like you love them. We always have and we always will!
