Okay, most of you know my trials and tribulations with trying to find anywhere or someone to watch Tillie. It's been 2 years and every avenue I try ends with a dead end. And now, the place that has been recommended for awhile, kind of my 'last resort' BUT the best, kennel free, kind of home/outside boarding place just rejected us!! I am a HUGE people pleaser/peace keeper. I can not stand it when someone is mad at me or just plain doesn't like me. So, this actually really hurts me.
I contacted the lady a few weeks ago and she sent me paper work. I filled it all out and e-mail it back to her. A full week went by and I hadn't heard anything, so I sent her another e-mail asking if she had recieved my paper work. A few days later she says yes and that we can set up a day care day. Keep in mind I don't know much about the place, have never been out there, or met anyone from their, so even though my friends rave about the place, I wanted to check it out. BUT I am just suppose to leave her there, the first time I visit. Anyway, so I sent her this e-mail :
Great! I am a bit of a nervous nellie... will she be supervised closely during her day care day to see how she does?
She isn't used to being around other dogs, so I am nervous about how she will do. I have been working with her a lot and she does well around small, non barky, non aggressive dogs, but she hasn't ever had the chance to be off leash with any other dogs. All my fault, but wanted you to know! She is also VERY attached to me and will be very confused when I leave her, will someone be able to let her follow them around and what not? or how does it work with the newbies??
Thank you for understanding my worries!!
Does it sound like Tillie is aggressive? or do I make us sound horrible or something??? I just had some questions, that's all, that I wanted to ask.
so, today I get home from work and got this e-mail back:
I donít believe "kennel name here" will be the best fit for Tillie. The dogs are closely supervised and receive lots of human attention, but in order for our guests to enjoy this type of boarding, they ďmust love dogs.Ē Due to her lack of socialization with other dogs, Iím afraid she will be overwhelmed by the activity here. It sounds to me like Tillie would be much happier at home, in the care of a loving pet/house sitter. Thank you so much for considering us!
She answered very politely and compassionately and I think has Tillie's best interest at heart, but still. Sight unseen. Tillie didn't even get a CHANCE...
I feel like a failure. AND we STILL don't have anyone anywhere that could ever watch Tillie. I just feel like curling up and crying....
