ABOUT THE PAW ROOM

“The Paw Room idea came from my first dog, Guyton. That's his picture in the logo. He was a large black lab and a true gentle giant of a dog. As he aged it was harder and harder to get him out with cold, icy, and snowy conditions. As his arthritis progressed his confidence in his movement decreased. I felt so sad about not being able to have a safe place for him in his senior years to remain active physically and mentally. Thus came The Paw Room.
The paw depicts a roof for a safe haven. The toes on the logo are actually imprints of Guyton's paw. The background is the northern lights. As he aged and needed to get up each night to go outside, I would go with him no matter how cold or bad the weather. Together we would look for the northern lights. Sometimes we found them and other times not so much. I brought those elements together to honor Guyton's memory in the creation of The Paw Room"
Guyton Lived and Loved until he was 14yrs old
