I agree with you, I would have done the same thing, two weeks is way too long to leave your babies. I have the same thing with my family, my mom doesn't beleive dogs belong in the house, she thinks they belong outside on a big property. She's an interior designer, and would cringe at the hair. She thinks pets ruin your home. I feel sorry for her, not to know the love of a pet. My sister is allergic to cats, and says she's allergic to dogs, so won't have them in her home, but when she comes here she seems fine, so whatever, I stay home and they come here, but this is their home.
