When I think about how much Marne has given us, I almost cannot put my gratitude into words. We fell in love with Fiona the dog; she was up for adoption. It would be the beginning of an emotional roller coaster. Fiona had been in many foster homes and had some behavioral and trust issues. We immediately felt a connection, but the first night at home was less than pleasant…far less. In our sleepless haze we made the heartbreaking decision, like others before us, to return Fiona. After a couple of days of tears and guilt, we decided to beg for another chance with Fiona. We were told that she was going to be living a trainer, Marne, for a three week boot camp and we could pick her up at the end. When we picked Fiona up we were both excited and nervous, based on the last night we had spent with our new pet. I cannot tell you the difference. Night and day…she was still a little nervous, but her bad habits were under control. Marne came to our house weekly for months to help all of us adjust to our new family. We have another lab and felt like we were good doggie parents, but Marne was a miracle worker. We cannot imagine our lives without Fiona or Marne. When we have traveled over the past several years, Marne is the only person we have trusted to care for Fiona and Nicholas. She has an amazing connection with animals and truly enjoys what she does.
