You Left Me!

A bit delayed, but how was everyone's Easter/Passover?  Husband and I went to Reno for the weekend.  Since we were only there two days, we decided to forgo the 20 hours of driving and just fly, meaning we had to board Theo.  It ended up being 4 days of boarding for him because we dropped him off Friday morning (for doggy daycare and boarding in the evening), and weren't able to pick him up until Monday because they were closed for Easter (but yes, still taking care of the animals).  And since we were working Monday, we just did the usual doggy daycare and picking him up after work.  

When I finally got him back Monday evening, he was pretty pissed at me.  He had a "you left me!" look on his face the whole way home.  He didn't want to be touched, he didn't want to even be around me.  He pretty much just curled up and went to sleep in another room after we got home.  Husband had to go out of town for work Monday morning, so it was just the two of us.  Thankfully, he got over it by morning.  He was his usual peppy self, and when Husband came home Tuesday night, he was happy again.  Pehw!  Ok, maybe boarding isn't as painless as we thought.  Heh.





We had some friends over for dinner on Saturday night.  Theo was in heaven.  Not one, but three people willing to play fetch with him!  Oh my goodness!  My friend Mouth was there, and he is Theo's shining star.  He just adores him.  During dinner I found out why.  Mouth kept feeding him!  No wonder!  Hehe.  Stop trying to buy my puppy's love!  It totally works, you know.  





Summer is officially here.  It seems we're skipping straight past Spring this year.  That means it's already too hot to go outside in the middle of the day.  It was in the 90s yesterday!  I'm a little bummed because I don't think we got out enough while the weather was good.  Hopefully we'll get a couple more weekends of cool days before Summer totally sets in. *fingers crossed*

Summer's here?!? We haven't had SPRING here yet! It's in the 40's right now, and finally things are just beginning to show some green!

Summer is here where I live. Welcome to Southern California. The summers here are brutal, so this is not a good thing. I'm not looking forward to keeping Theo (and myself!) inside until it gets dark outside.

Ugh! That is why I always stress out just thinking about leaving Gibson anywhere :( Glad to hear they get over it though!!

boarding is hard, but I think it is better to board them somewhere then leave them at home and have a pet sitter come in. At least when they are boarded they aren't at home wondering when you are coming back. I think the more you board
Theo and then come back to him, he will get"used" to it although he will always, of course, miss you when you are gone.

I know what you mean about the weather; but it is suppose to be 69 here by the weekend!

I agree Betty, boarding is definitely better than just leaving him home. This is the place I take him for doggy daycare, so he was already familiar with the facility and the staff. He got to do his play time with the other dogs, as usual. The only difference is that he didn't get to come home. I think he just missed his routine. It didn't scare him or anything.
