im sorry that you thought that it smelled like dog. you never mentioned it during your month stay. i would have taken steps to make it better. i could have sent you to the coast for a couple of days and had the carpet cleaned again, or replaced it altogether. the next couple to stay when asked said they did not think it smelled, but iv had a chance to have it cleaned again anyway. im certain the situation has been rectified now. thanks for letting me know!
