Irv West was recently given a puppy and is planning to hold a public puppy play-time once a week, which he said this week would provide benefits for not only the dogs, but their owners.
“It is critical to raising a well-adjusted adult dog that it is given the opportunity to socialize with other pups in its early months of development,” West said. Participants will meet in the Warrensburg-Thurman area for up to an hour. For details or to sign up for the puppy playtime, call Irv at 623-3987 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. any day of the week. There are no fees. The group is limited to the first eight people-pup combination signing up.
Those Thurman residents seeking removal of their household trash, are welcome to call Jim Desourdy, who picks up refuse weekly for a fee of $5. If you only need occasional pick up, Jim will pick up as needed. Trash must be placed in pre-purchased orange bags. To contact him, call 623-4254.
