Marilyn's touch with animals is amazing - I recently boarded my canine companion with her for ten days -- during which we had a huge storm. My border collie, named Kelly, has always been deathly afraid of storms and especially lightening. It was so bad that whenever it even started to rain Kelly would jump on my lap and start panting and drooling frantically -- (irrespective of the time of the day or the activity in which I was involved!) The only way I could quiet her was to take her into the bathroom and turn on the fan so the noise would drown out the sounds of the storm.
After her stay with Marilyn I noticed the next time a storm came around Kelly was much calmer. She hid under my computer desk and panted but it was manageable and receded within minutes. I certainly got my money's worth and feel like Kelly now has a home away from home! Thank you Marilyn for your tremedous gifts - to us as pet owners and to our beloved companions!
