Felt very comfortable leaving my dog Ellie with Melissa. I could tell how Ellie looked in the pictures I received that she was having a good time and was relaxed. Also when my return travel plans were delayed due to weather Melissa did not hesitate to extend Ellie’s stay.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Where ever he/she is used to sleeping. We share our bed and fur-niture with Bitsy. Dogs rule this house.

All day! I have a home office where Bitsy has all of her toys and bed. We usually hang out all day together and get outside for walks throughout the day.
