Fort Hyde comes highly recommended from friends who use the facility regularly, and the lady I spoke to on the phone was incredibly friendly and professional. Mari is the type of social dog that even loves going to the vet's office. "People who like me! They might pet me! They might give me a biscuit! How hard can I wag my whole body??" I can pay an extra $5 to have someone play with Mar which somehow seems wrong yet is totally understandable. I guess. One look into her big brown eyes and there is no resistance to her request to play. She used to be indefatigable - literally - but now her spirit is more willing than her body. She still loves her tennis balls and sticks, and her squeaky balls and squeakers. Mostly, though, she now loves her soft bed. And I love her. I hope she has fun at camp!
I found the following oldies in an obscure file on my computer ... Mari is now 13.5 years old and Chandler is now 15.5 years old : )
