this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

dog boarding

A year ago, margie went to stay at

for the weekend and came back with ripped, bloody paws, depression, and exhastion. Although an open boarding area sounds nice in theory, the neglect of the irresponsible staff doesn't balance the cons. Her owners were not happy, to say the least, and Jon almost called Child Protection Services [canine division] on their A$#es !
We just got back from Duluth.
While we were gone, this time Margie stayed at

in White Bear Lake, MN.
She had her own 2-room kennel, outings, friendly staff (who treat the dogs like their own pets) and a bath that has made her fur smell soooooo good.

She came back to us happy, albeit grumpy for being left behind for 2 days, and very healthy-looking! Sadly, she almost looked better than when we left her!

The point? We HIGHLY recommend Goldwood Kennels!!!

It's worth the extra 10-20 miles out of your way. (and cheaper!)!

Knowing that the dog (who is a family member) won't be beaten, neglected, and catch a case of dysthymia is a comfort. aaaaaaah, breathe easily. The dog is safe. And pampered!
