Melissa is an AWESOME sitter!!!... I have an old Labrador retriever (turns 14 next month) and she just loved being around Melissa and her dog... She has a clean and safe home... She sends pictures everyday... Schnelly felt so much at home... I highly recommend Melissa and I would let her take care of Schnelly anytime...

Thank you so much Dan, it was such a pleasure to have her and she is always welcome!
