The year is half over! MPBA has been busy working on many projects. In the month of June, we met with Governor Mike Parson, Chris

the Prez Sez

Chinn, the Stockton Middle School, went to the Cattleman’s Steak Fry and many other events. Hope to be able to discuss more about our conversation with the Governor’s Office and the AG department very soon. We are very hopeful we can get good news to report in the next few months. Thank you to everyone who has stepped up and met the MPBA Challenge! This helps MPBA to do all we do along with doing more. We need some volunteers to help at events we need to attend and to go to the Capital to tell our story about the breeders. It takes a TEAM to move forward; a few can’t pull the without others helping to push. Last but not least, we have a new chapter in MPBA! Look for the story in the magazine. If you don’t attend any chapter meetings, you should start! Or, if you would like to start a new chapter in your area, contact us and we will be glad to help you with getting one started. Let’s all work on making this a great year!

from your Publicity Director

Are you a backyard breeder, a puppy mill, or a professional?

PROFESSIONAL : Engaged in a specified activity as one’s main paid occupation rather than a pastime; worthy or appropriate to a professional person; competent, skillful, or assured.

The challenge was a way to step up and be counted as a professional. Some of you did not step up to meet the challenge.

Being professional raises our image to make it more difficult for the AR’s to make us look bad or inadequate.

Step up and be professional.

Ann Quinn, MPBA Publicity Director
