I am so totally in charge of New Orleans Pet Care Headquarters today. I am only barking when someone answers the telephone. Max and I are using the sofa as a race track and I am just worn out but do not want to miss anything. I am cute and thank goodness on holiday! Who needs the beach...
There is no way I am returning your call… All we need is both of us crying on the phone.
I had no idea what New Orleans Pet Care… post Katrina life would look like. I remember writing daily schedules on post-it notes for each of my team members.
We were thrilled when we got our little Magnolia…
I cannot thank you enough for supporting this company that means so very much to me... For being there for me when we needed you most. It was that small(very few) group of you that kept me going... kept my team at Tulane and made our new "normal"... well, "normal". Although often discussed... throwing in the towel was just not an option becuase of that "small few".
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Dr. Rich (you hate when we called you that!) and Magnolia’s Nurse Mom… Rich - you must be an amazing Cardiologist! Thank you both for always calling to check on Remy and I. Dr. Rich, thank you for making sure my heart was always well taken care of when my mind was not fully engaged or capable of thinking past Remy. Always feeling like I could pick up the phone was a great comfort.
I am so sorry that you are leaving us but I expect as all good New Orleans natives do… we will see you when you get back home. Much love… I will buy the first round of adult beverages and key lime pie when you get back! Take care of our sweet Magnolia. Oh yea - please don't have another baby until you get back. We had so much fun decorating the house!
So, I wanted to use this form to support efforts...
In case you haven't heard, the lighthouse on Lake Pontchartrain is underconsideration for restoration, but it needs our help. I'm hoping you will take a sec, (and it only takes a sec) to help out. Our lighthouse on Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans was destroyed by Katrina. Built in the 1890s,the lighthouse has been a lakefront landmark for years, guiding boats in andout of the Orleans Marina and the Municipal Yacht Harbor. Some of the original materials were salvaged and they're trying to rebuild it but of course it takes money the city doesn't have right now. There is a company that restores lighthouses and has a contest going onright now to donate new windows and doors for a lighthouse in need of restoration, and the Canal lighthouse is on the list! PLEASE help out and vote for New Orleans!!
Yes, I'm sure you guys are probably tired of hearing this but....my little nephew is freakin' adorable! Here he is again with his puppy Bailey. I think she's his little watchdog. She has to be everywhere he is, too cute.
Arrow is 16! Cane 14! Katsu... Two or three. 16 and 14... Needless to say they are all very well taken care of and such beautiful cuddle babies. Well, everyone but Katsu. Katsu would rather play "bet you can't catch me!".

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!
