Michelle started petsitting in Germany, thats where i met her. i had a huge drooley bassit, MJ and a grouchy 14 year old jack russel and she loved them both like they were her own. She didn't mind the drool that was constantly flyin around her house, just cleaned it up and went and loved on MJ. Trixie my lil' one was a grouchy old girl and really didn't like anyone but me and my husband and it took her about 3 years b4 she even like him. lol But Michelle she loved instantly. seriously Trix would go upstairs and hide under Michelle's bed when it was time to go b/c she wanted to stay with her. :) Michelle is one of those ppl who animals are really taken with, she loves them all and they all love her. Even the ones with attitude she is patient and understanding with. I would recomend her to anyone who would listen. she is great! your pets won't be treated better anywhere else. its like they are "going to grandma's" to be spoiled rediculously!
