We are big fans. We sent Maddie off for her first extended stay during our remodel project with trepidation—would she be lonely? Would she miss us? Would she be well-taken care of? Now, whenever we go on vacation, I feel like we’re giving Maddie a treat vacation, too, by sending her off for fresh air, exercise, and lots of positive attention. She comes back calm, happy, and fit. And when the van pulls up the next time—she runs down the front walk and jumps in!
