My dog had The Best Time staying with Colleen and Bruce! Theirs is a home filled with love, care, walks, treats and praise. Dog Heaven. Colleen sent wonderful photos and texts. Hannah, their awesome and mellow golden, welcomed our dog with a very relaxed vibe, so nice. Will definitely be contacting Colleen again when we go out of town.
