2018 MWCR Calendar
MWCR member Eileen Mack has once again used her considerable talents to create a beautiful calendar featuring MWCR collies. The 2018 calendar will be available for purchase in early November and will be available at our Annual Dinner on November 4. Thank you to Eileen for the hours of work designing the calendar and thank you to the many people who submitted gorgeous photographs of their beautiful collies.
Hurricane Irma in Florida
MWCR member Linda Riegger divides her time between Minnesota and Florida. Linda was in Florida when Hurricane Irma struck the Gulf Coast side of the state. Linda’s neighborhood was under mandatory evacuation, so she and her furry family moved inland into her father’s assisted living apartment. As Hurricane Irma battered the area, Linda not only kept her pets calm, but she also helped the residents at the apartment complex with their pets. Thank you, Linda, for using your animal rescue skills to help animals during a very frightening experience.
Memorial Service for Carol Propotnik
A memorial service for animal behaviorist and MWCR member Carol Propotnik will be held on Sunday, October 8, from 3 – 6 p.m. at the home of Don Wanschura located at 7505 Dupont Avenue South in Richfield. Well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Carol’s family has asked that any memorials be made to the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue, Howling for Wolves, or another animal charity. – Terry Libro, MWCR President
