We are raising money for a memorial park bench at Paw Park, the Oklahoma City dog park. The bench will be solid concrete with a commemorative plaque with Patsy's name and a message. Hundreds of people every week will enjoy the sunshine and fresh air with their beloved pets, and rest on Patsy's bench while their dogs play. We believe this would make Patsy very happy.
