November 2018 Newsletter

Welcome to our Newsletter! We decided to bring it back since we always seem to have something going on to share with clients. We will be highlighting events going on with MDP as well as providing general information that would be of interest to our pet parents! We just completed our 3rd Annual Costume Contest so be sure to check out the adorable photos on our Facebook page! The month of November is always a time when I reflect on God’s grace and provision. I am so thankful for my amazing team AND for all my wonderful clients. Whether your dog comes here for daycare/ boarding or we see them at their house for dog walking/ pet sitting, we become attached and treat all of them as if they were our own! Thank you again for using Mid-Day Play and PLEASE feel free to contact me with questions or concerns!


I also wanted to share the news that Mid-Day Play is now a member of the International Boarding and Pet Services Association (IBPSA)! I was able to attend my first conference with this organization in St. Louis this in October and am so glad I went! I learned a lot and will be sharing information along the way. If you would like to learn more about IBPSA go to and read about how they are helping to make the pet industry safer for our 4-legged family members!!


Our mission is to improve the quality of life of every pet, for every family, with love and compassion.

Employee of the Month!

I have chosen to highlight Linda Race, my Office Manager (fill in dog walker/handler/pet sitter/decorator/organizer ….well, you get the picture! 😊) as my Employee of the Month! She has been with me for over 6 years now and has become an integral part of the success of Mid-Day Play Pet Services! She has done it all but is now my right-hand lady in the office. Linda is always on time, always willing to anything extra that is asked of her and goes the extra mile when needed. Linda is an amazing mother who also goes above and beyond for her children, her dogs and family! I am extremely grateful for Linda’s long-term employment and devotion to MDP!!
