I recently found myself having to move, and never thought that my dog Mogley would be such a factor in my choice of residence. I found myself needing to validate my emotional ties and was very lucky to find this service which helped me make a highly desirable decision in deciding my choice of location and validated my need to keep my dog and support me in keeping me & my buddy together & supported my health needs. Thank God I found this service. Their swift actions allowed me more freedom to choose a property that suited my needs. Thank you for your support. I highly recommend their services!

The vest and collar and leash and tag and ID cards are great and she is used to both the vest and collar. But I can't get it across to you that there is nothing showing on my screen when I try to view the certificate. All I have is a phone and it's not showing anything even i click on the link. I'm not sure how to get UPS to print it if I can't see it. Is it possible for you to send it to another email address. Like my fiance.
