My dog, Cory, had a great stay with Sandi. I was gone for 2 weeks, my longest vacation away from Cory, and Sandi made me feel more comfortable by updating me with photos and videos of Cory. He seemed to have a great time with Sandi's dog, Mr. Darcy and it was so reassuring to know he was in a loving home. Sandi was easy going with Cory and made accommodations until he got the ...
A great first visit. Our dog returned tired so assume that he got some good play while visiting. Loved the pictures.
Sugar had the best stay with Sandi and Mr. Darcy. She misses them both already. This was our first time using Rover and we were nothing but

This is a happy home with my black Lab, Mr. Darcy, showing your dog all the best toys, where the treats are hidden, and how to romp in the cul-de-sac!
Mr. Darcy is an AKC registered therapy dog, earned his Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification, and he and I volunteer for Furry Friends, a pet-assisted therapy program. We make monthly visits to rehabilitation centers, community centers and to a children's psychiatric facility.

We recently hosted Mowgli, a 1 yr-old Yellow Lab, and he turned out to be quite a character with a real sense of humor! Mowgli tried to get Mr Darcy to chase him around the living room, but Mr Darcy was not having it. So Mowgli moved on to his second option - tearing into the stuffed toys! I have to admit, he really wormed his way into my heart and I do miss him.
We are now dog-sitting Lyka, a beautiful 2-yr old German Shepard who is a bit impish...she lets me know when she is displeased if I leave her alone with Darcy, toys, water and access to the dog run. She is a real sweetheart who just wants to cuddle. She is sleeping on my feet as I type :-)
There seems to be a pattern forming with my doggie guests. If Mr. Darcy is lying on me while I'm in my recliner (a 70 lb. lap dog!), my doggie guests also try to get up onto the recliner and cuddle with me. Not sure how much longer the recliner will allow this behavior!
