OFF THE PATH WITH PAUL AND DOREEN... Dean, Paul Plotkowski, and his wife, Doreen, allowed GVSU into their home for the day where we get to see an abundance of beautiful birds that Doreen takes in, nurtures, and cares for. Dean Plotkowski and Doreen are very proud of their business, Casa La Parrot, located on 28th street in Grand Rapids. Of course, their many other pets make a guest appearance too!
