marvelous Mattie

Hello.  I am Mattie. I’m an almost 12-year-old Catahoula mix. My people went on a very long vacation and they didn’t take me so I am here at A Tucson Tail bed & biscuit dog boarding with Karyn and the greyhounds Girlfriend and Daisy.

I like it here as Karyn gives me lots of pets and massages and big smiles. You see, I cannot hear. I hear loud claps when Karyn wants my attention but otherwise silence is golden.

Silence doesn’t stop me from eating good food and treats and doing my business and taking long naps under the ceiling fan or right by Karyn’s feet and going for a walk. Walks drive me wild; I come to life in the morning when I know we are going on a walk. We go early and I walk with Daisy greyhound; we are pals.

Lazy Daisy and Mattie

Ask your people if you can stay here when they go on vacation; you won’t be sorry. She accepts greyhounds and other socialized (mostly senior) dogs. (Some restrictions)

Kingston relaxes on the patio

I am Kingston. I am a male of few words. I usually let Mandy do the talking but she talked last time so I guess it’s my turn.

I’m old, 12 years 7 months, by greyhound standards. I mostly eat and sleep and go for short walks and mark new spaces. I think I have marked Karyn’s patio pretty thoroughly.

My people went away but I know they are returning. Karyn follows their directions well but I bark at her to deviate and give me more cookies but she sticks to the plan.

Daisy + Kingston on the patio

I like Daisy. She’s a wild girl. She zips around the patio like she’s in charge. I try to hang out with her as much as I can.
