Dog boarding ends in tragedy

My husband and I wanted to attend a graduation ceremony in a nearby state. We were gone two days.

We had checked out several boarding places and had decided to board our beloved dog at a well-known Fargo boarder. Now she is dead.

We left a happy dog there on Friday morning and picked up a dying dog Monday morning. We rushed her to the veterinarian when we saw her condition, but the vet said it was too late. The boarding hotel should have called someone days ago.

The boarder will not say they are sorry this happened. We loved her like a child. We want to warn all pet owners: Beware of where you board your pets. Keep them in your home. Have someone look in on them. Anything. Do not board them, please.

Grant is mourning the loss of her dog, Laddie.
