Poodle Note Cards Available as Fundraiser for PCAF Work:   PCAF Board member Tom Carneal had an idea for note cards featuring historic poodles, and we planned to make these available at our PCA table this year.  Here are the eight cards Tom has so far, and his print company did a beautiful job (at Tom’s own expense, as a PCAF donation).  Card and envelope come in a plastic protector, have dog names and a little info, plus art/photo credit (we got permissions), on the back.  They are $2.00 each or a special price of $12 for the complete set of eight.  You can send your order and a check written to the PCA Foundation to Tom at 25904 State Hwy.
