Memorial service planned for dog lovers on Sunday

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

It’s been more than a month, but the owners of six dogs who perished of heat stroke in the back of their dog walker’s car are still in mourning.
Kevin Warchuck with Until We Meet Again Pet Memorial and Cremation Centre says he is organizing a memorial this Sunday in Langley City for the families and other animal lovers.

“Its also to thank the community of Langley for all their efforts in searching for their dogs and they wanted to hold a service to help them transition into the next step of the journey in their heeling.”

Dog walker Emma Paulsen claimed the dogs were stolen from the back of her truck in Langley.
Nearly a week later, she confessed that the dogs died and she dumped them in a ditch in Abbotsford.
The memorial will be held in Spirit Square at Douglas Park around 2 p.m.

  1. It’s nice that they want to thank the community and I hope they can now move on. Hopefully we’re not going to see future yearly anniversary memorials of these deaths covered in the media. Families can do that in private, as others have who have lost animals. They were pets, not humans – the families must now move on. And don’t compare the loss of a dog to the loss of a child – they’re not even close to being on the same page, book, or library for that matter!

  2. Really! These were dogs. These people need to get a grip. These are dogs we are talking about. No , I am not an animal hater. We lost our dog in Dec. and it was a sad day but this has been going on for too long sensationalized by the media.
    Emma Paulsen made a tragic mistake, but, it was a mistake. She did not do this on purpose. When I read in the news there is a collection of money for a memorial and legal fees I just shake my head. This is way out of control. It is time to put it to rest and forgive the dog walker. It was a mistake. Go down to the pound and adopt a new dog! Put it in perspective.
