Hurricane Katrina Pets Won’t Be Forgotten

NEW ORLEANS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A memorial in New Orleans reminds folks that it’s “im-paw-ssible” to forget a beloved pet.

This Saturday (Aug. 30), Greatest American Dog judge Wendy Diamond and her pup Lucky Diamond will visit the Big Easy to unveil the Katrina Pet Memorial, a statue honoring the lost and displaced pets of Hurricane Katrina.

The event benefits the Humane Society of Louisiana, which is in desperate need of funding to build an animal shelter.

Diamond – who runs the pet lovers’ publication Animal Fair – is the official chairperson of the memorial, but Lucky is the real lucky dog.

She’s the official “chairdog,” a title the pooch is proud of.

Diamond explains, “Lucky is happy to be the chairdog, since she’s getting tired of being called a lapdog.”

Lucky is ready to honor Katrina pets and even got her hair done so she can look fancy for the big day.

Diamond hopes the pet memorial becomes an American landmark where pet owners can pay their respects and eventually fill the site with flowers, pictures, and favorite pet toys.
