On January 1, 2023, new associate members will be charged a one time fee of $10, covering the duration of their associate membership.
This will have no effect on current associate members, but anyone signing up after January 1, 2023 will be subject to the new cost. Why the change? This year, with overwhelming support, our membership changed our bylaws to grant associate members a larger voice in the club - the ability to vote themselves.
For all of SEA-PAH history until now, associate members couldn’t vote and had a hard time participating at events, which are traditionally held at 21+ venues. With the bylaw change we passed the first hurdle, and it’s time to tackle the second. To do that, we need money to afford 18+ venues. A $10 fee covers the cost of your membership tag. It’s small, but it’s a start to keeping costs under control for the club and being able to afford more flexible events.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This club is for all of our members, and now our associate’s voices are louder than ever. Let us hear from you.
Nominations for the SEA-PAH Board of Directors election are now closed. Those nominated and eligible will be contacted soon, and voting should open up to all members in good standing in December. We look forward to watching our community grow with new members and ideas!

That’s right after a short hiatus, The Seattle Pups and Handlers are happy to host our yearly tradition of Best in Show. This year we are challenging The Portland Pets and Handlers (PDX-PAH) to a talent show. The talent will be scored by a panel of Judges. The audience can make donations to bribe the judges to change their scores! Money raised at this event will go towards our Beneficiary Lambert house. This is one event you do not want to miss.
While we wait on those, we are looking for interested folks who would like to be on stage performing a lip sync, stand up acts, or skits to name a few ideas. Volunteering is no small feat, and volunteers will need to be able to commit to practice on their own time so they’re ready on November 12. If you’re interested email us what you’d like to perform at email@example.com. We are also looking for volunteers to help work the event and run the music.

Some of you who attended my “Becoming Friends with your Inner ESA” LEEP class in October had requested information on the sources that I consulted when preparing the class. Below are links to a few websites and videos that helped me build my notes for the class. If you did not attend the class, you are also welcome to look through and see if any of these can help you on a journey of self-care while engaging in puppy play.

Additionally, SEA-PAH did release a mental health resource list that is active on our website. It is mainly focused on Seattle and Washington resources but is a great list to consult when experiencing mental health related hardship.
Please take care of yourselves and know that you have a community that supports you! One Love One Pack,
