Ridley & Me

I lived most of my life on the San Francisco Peninsula. After some 20 years in the software industry I followed my heart to start a pet care service.

When Ridley boarded with me he went with me on my daily rounds.

In September, 2003 I moved to Hot Springs with my last housepet, Sugar, & my beloved Tennessee Walking Horse mare, DD.

~ DD loved jumping fences.
~ Sugar loved nothing more than hiding.

I walked & boarded dogs before Anise's Run & Play Dog Boarding was ready for 2-legged guests.

My vision was to offer true hospitality for boarding dogs & people traveling with pets. The beautiful setting is the icing on the cake!

I share my slice of heaven with my 3 rescue mutts:

~ Fergus came from a large dog rescue & has become more at ease with people.

~ Honey absolutely loves going to dog training class - any class!

~ Lucky (with the Yoda ears) is my snow dog.

Star, Sport & me

2 Tennessee Walking Horses

~ Star makes me work for her trust & cooperation.

~ Sport is very cooperative & loves to joke around.

I enjoy it so much when guests (especially children) join us in the paddock.

& 3 barn cats

~ Snuggles (rescue) jumps into the hammock with me while I'm hanging out with the horses.

~ Although she was born here, Halloween Candy wouldn't let me pet her for the first 6 years.

~ Tuxedo Timmy came for a visit 1 day & stayed.
