I am proud and happy to say that The Park Pet Retreat opened its gates (doors) to Pooch Parents and their Pooches on September 1, 2008.
We spent a long, hot summer renovating an automotive repair facility into the most beautiful doggie daycare I have ever seen. I would like to thank my project manager, Jeff Nobles, of Artisan Design Build , and his crew for all of their hard work and creative collaboration. It was hard on everyone working for 2 months in the stifling heat without air conditioning, but thankfully we all got along and had a great time bringing The Park to life.
Thanks also goes to Troy & Mitch of Southern Stainworks for their professional paint work and most artistic park mural on the back wall. They are ‘two wild & crazy guys’ who bring a lot of laughter to the job with them.
This was a new experience for all of us and brought us together as friends.
A special Thank You to Sharron Abercrombie for her loving artistry in The Park Store. It was a joy and amazement to watch her bring a blank wall to life.
I have never embarked on such a huge venture in my life, but I think it turned out pretty good. Thanks be to God for pointing me to this location, it is perfect. A loving Thank You to my son Sean, brother Mike, sis-n-law Susan, Ashleigh, and all my wonderful Friends for your love and support in this endeavor.
Thank You to The Park Rangers who have pitched in and helped to put the finishing touches on The Park Pet Retreat. They are a great bunch of people and Dog Lovers. It would not be The Park without them.
So, we are off to a good start and are looking forward to a long and successful relationship with all the Pooch Parents and Pooches here in Tucker and all places near and far.
Happy Tails to All,
