I adore pooches! they're family too

I've had dogs most of my life.
Dog-sat for my boss' 3 dogs since 2004. Sadly they're down to one now, it's tough when they age. They are/were my "niece & nephews". Love giving them massages. I find dogs therapeutic. An absolute joy. Took care of my deaf friends service dog & cats while she went on vacation...that was interesting! I don't mind sleeping with them & vise versa. I've cried when they've ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

That they don't bite/attack. Show/teach me hand gestures that the pooch was taught. I don't mind pit bulls as long as they're friendly!! (My grandmother had one)

When Melissa watches your pet

Public, comfortable areas. Play, nap, bond. I enjoy giving pooches massages (in their own ways, my "clients" tell me they want one lol). Someday in the future, I want to be certified for canine massage therapy !
