Gary was great! He sent me loads of pictures and let me know how Joe was doing. Joe came home a happy hound!

Lexi had a wonderful stay with Gary and Trooper! Gary was accommodating when we needed a last minute request. He sent us pictures the whole weekend and kept us updated while we were gone. Lexi doesn't like to eat when we are away and Gary took the extra time to convince her to eat all of her meals. Thanks Gary! It was great knowing we left her in good hands.
