P&G Pet Care's Four-Legged V.P. of Canine Communications Retires and Hands Over the Leash to Her Successor

After 9 Years of Dedicated Service, Euka Says Goodbye to Her Day Job and Hello to R&R


MASON, OHIO (APRIL 18, 2012) – After more than 50 dog years of gracing Procter & Gamble (P&G) Pet Care’s halls and conference rooms, Euka, the 10-year young Labrador retired from her post as V.P. of Canine Communications. Euka was formally thanked by employees for her nearly-decade long run of dedicated service to IAMS and Eukanuba. A retirement party was held in her honor where an official portrait was unveiled that will be hung in the Pet Care wing of the P&G Mason Business Center. Following the celebration, her successor, Pawl Griffin was inaugurated by being presented an official company name badge and bandanas of his brands (IAMS, Eukanuba and Natura Pet Foods.)
“Euka is an amazing dog who has brought so much joy to P&G Pet Care employees, our community and supporters of IAMS and Eukanuba, “ said Jason Taylor, external relations manager, P&G Pet Care. “We’ve enjoyed every moment with Euka and will miss her greatly, but we’re all looking forward to the chapter with Griffin taking the reins as our new V.P. of Canine Communications.”

Euka retires on the heels of spending the past 10 months training the youthful Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (PBGV), Griffin, on all the duties of a V.P. of Canine Communications, including public appearances, making friendships with the other dogs visiting Pet Care offices, and more.

“Griffin will handle his role well,” said Taylor. “He’s already done a tremendous job, especially at the AKC Eukanuba National Championship dog show in Orlando last December. He’s young and eager, and he’s been trained by the best.”
(The oil painting of Euka was commissioned by local artist Dawn B. Dwyer. You can see more of her work at www.dawnbdwyer.com.)

In 2004, her celebrity really took off when she became a national “cover dog” by appearing on Fortune Magazine with P&G CEO at the time, A.G. Lafley.

Before you are going to adapt a pet, make sure that you do know your responsibilities on them. They are just like people also that needs love and care.
