For the last six years I've raised, fostered and adopted dogs. I even work heavily with Paws in the City, a Dallas based animal non-profit.
I raised one of my dogs from a small pup and just recently adopted a hairy mutt from Paws in the City after only fostering her for two weeks. #fosterfail I remember begging my best friend growing up to let me go next door and play with her neighbor's golden retriever. She even once made me a binder decorated in dog photos accompanied by a coffee mug emblazoned with a dog head on it for my birthday. In short, I'm a dog lover. Nay, I need dogs to live. Which is strange since my parents only ever gave us cats as kids, but I'm not bitter. Joke's on them! Now I get to pick dog hair off of my clothes at work!
Your dog will enjoy a stay at Casa de Melody and get to know my two dogs, Ginger and Pepper, affectionately dubbed The Spice Girls. They'll playfully welcome your furball as part of the pack and be sure to show where the treats are kept. I do have a fully gated small parking lot that I feel free enough to let my dogs play in off-leash, but would be hesitant to bring a new dog out that way unless you felt comfortable enough in doing so. Otherwise, the pups will be pack-walked or taken to Swiss Avenue Dog Park to stretch their puppy legs! Additionally, the Sante Fe Trail is within walking distance of my house, if your pup is into that sort of thing!
If your senior pup is good with stairs, by all means bring them! I do live on the second floor and stairs are involved coming and out for each walk and bathroom break. Dogs with back or hip issues might not do too well.
I look forward to meeting you and your dog!
All pets must be picked up by 10:00 PM on the last day of the reservation. If the reservation is over one hour past the pick up time, I ask that another reservation be made for the next day. Additionally, I require that each dog booked be up to date on shots and be neutered or spayed, unless the dog is not of age. This is for the safety of your dogs and mine! Thank you for your cooperation!
