SUMMIT PET CARE
LEE’S SUMMIT, MO
For more than a decade, my dogs Abbi and Jack (affectionately known as The Animals) had the good fortune of being cared for by the good folks at Summit Pet Care. I relocated to a new city almost two years ago, and I have yet to find a doggy daycare that entertains them and cares for them like SPC. It is my expectation that when I leave The Animals in someone else's care, they will treat them with the same level of love, fun, and attention as me. I always knew this would be the case when I left them in the capable hands of the SPC doggy daycare. When we moved away from Kansas City, I literally cried as we drove away from our last visit to SPC. They sent us off with gifts that captured memories of all of the years that The Animals had spent with them.
I have never had the sort of relationship with any business – not just Pet Services providers, but any business – that I had with Summit Pet Care. At SPC, I was never treated as merely a customer; I was treated like family. Whenever we’re in town, we make certain to go back. It’s good for The Animals to get a chance to see their old friends in doggy daycare, and I’m always glad to get a chance to see my old friends -- the employees that make me feel like I never went away.
The dog has got more fun out of Man than Man has got out of the dog, for the clearly demonstrable reason that Man is the more laughable of the two animals.
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans and can love you more than you love yourself.
