Sophie & Bo's borrower Monica

"I was experiencing a difficult time last November with a loss of family member and change of personal circumstances, and this is when I decided I needed a new friend. BorrowMyDoggy was the best solution as I have just embarked on a new degree and was working full-time. Through BorrowMyDoggy I met Sophie, the most chilled Bernese Mountain Dog I have ever seen and Bo, the most energetic Cocker Spaniel in the world, and they've enriched my life not only with the company I needed at the time but with the sweetest kisses and hugs I have ever received. I still look after them from time to time and we have planned big adventures through the Peak District in March and to visit as many beaches close to London as we can.

Now that I feel I have overcome my sad experiences I have the power to thank everyone who's helped me and you guys are at the top of my list along with the puppers' owners.

So thank you, for your great work and assistance and for your brilliant ideas! I am sure I'm not the only one who has gone through a tough time and found comfort in the sweet cuddles of a borrowed doggy. I am spreading the joys of BorrowMyDoggy with my friends and some of who live in Sheffield and have recently joined. They love it!

This is one of the best initiatives I have seen in a long time and keep it up!" Sophie and Bo's borrower, Monica"
