I met Sue during a very difficult time when I was forced to quarantine my senior dog for 3 months. He had never been away from home or kenneled and I didn't think he would survive 3 months away from home, let along left in a kennel, at 12 years old. I was faced with a decision to either euthanize him, or kennel him - neither of which were good options for me at his age. I left him at a boarding facility where Sue was the manager at the time. On his first day, Sue immediately took Mason in as her own and treated him as part of her family. His distress quickly turned in to content and joy being with Sue and her animals. It made the 3 months away much easier for my family and I, as well as Mason. I knew, without a doubt, that he was getting the love and affection (and treats) he needed and would get at home. On days I wasn't able to visit, she would send me photos and videos of him and tell me how he was doing. From that horrible time I made a lifelong friend who I trust more than anyone else with my dogs. I know they are loved on and happy when they are in her care. Now, 2 years later, Sue comes once a week to take my younger dog on a group hike and often times, she lets Mason tag along as well when he's having a good day getting around. They absolutely love her and are so excited to see her when she comes.
