Additional Comments:

Our request was somewhat odd but Leslie is really a star.

To drive a Basset around town two times week for physiotherapy takes a very special person for the job.

She was on time for each appointment and took good care of Sophia.

Sophia is so happy to see her with each appointment and is really getting attached to Leslie.

Sophia can actually now walk or run to the car to go with Leslie.

Leslie keeps me updated of their arrival and departure so that I am on top of their schedule.

Thank you Leslie.

I cannot thank you enough for this huge task that you were willing to do.
