I should clarify. We've been ranking for "Safe Shepherd" and SafeShepherd.com. A 301-redirect from MelonCard.com shouldn't bring DOWN our rank for "Safe Shepherd" on SafeShepherd.com. Unless I'm missing how the algorithm works..

If MelonCard was the primary source of "google juice" for SafeShepherd.com, then the change would certainly affect your rank.

301 redirects are supposed to transfer the link juice so that couldn't have been the issue.
