I'm finally getting around to giving High-Stone their props. Seriously, what does this place do to make your pet so happy? My dog can sense when we are within a few miles of High-Stone and I don't know how he does it. I'll load him up in the Jeep for a trip to the vet or a long jog around Bachman and if we get close to High-Stone (even if we are on I-35 - not even Harry Hines or Mockingbird!), he starts wagging his tail and pacing. I have to give High-Stone credit for making my dog love them, even though I am secretly jealous. Della and the rest of her pet-loving staff have won my picky Sammy over and make it hard for me to compete. And don't even get my vet started on Sammy's personality issues - once we pass the High-Stone ""area"" (according to Sammy), he puts his tail between his legs and starts whimpering. Even though my vet is awesome, how can he compete with Della, Mario, and all the fun ""regular"" dogs at High-Stone? It has gotten to the point where I've made impromptu daycare stopovers out of guilt because it makes Sammy so happy (at your own risk, though - they are popular and get close to full booking!). I may look like a loser jogging by myself around Bachman Lake, but at least Sammy isn't whimpering and pulling the his leash south the whole time. Thank you, High-Stone? Haha. I am grateful, though, that I never feel guilty when I need pet care! Keep up the good work and please don't change anything because we have spent years trying to find a boarding place Sammy and I both like (and where I feel he is safe from death-by-heat exhaustion - scary!). How do you afford that Texas summer air conditioning? Nevertheless, I will never take Sammy anywhere else. My girlfriend who has a cat feels the same way, which is impressive since cats don't really have feelings (kidding). Trust me, this place is magic (even met my boyfriend at their holiday pet party) - but only for owners who don't mind sharing their pet's love with High-Stone!!
Pros: Sammy loves this place
Cons: Sammy gets depressed when we come home
