Ok so I'm going on vacation for a week with my parents and my husband is staying home with spike bc he has to work his job wouldn't let him
Take vacation time anyway do y'all think spike will b sad or think that I have left him? I have a dog sitter aka my cousin staying all day with him during the week then daddy will b home right after work. I have left a detailed schedule for my husband and my cousin but I'm still worried that he will get sad or something bc I am the one who takes care of him. :*[* this is the 1st time I have left him so I don't know what to expect.

Crying mama :**[**

I'm sure he's gonna miss you like crazy.........he may even refuse to eat. But, his daddy will be there and that will make him feel better. I'm sure he is going to be THRILLED when you come home. Bully slobbers all over!

He'll be just fine...thank your lucky stars you don't have to kennel Spike! I did it once to Bentley and cried and fretted the ENTIRE vacation - NEVER again! He will be well cared for and ever so pleased to get his momma back. Have fun!

Well I think spike knows I'm
Leaving he keeps on staring at my luggage and staring at me :*[ the good thing is that my husband and my laptop has webcams so we will schedule nightly chats which will prob result in a slobbery laptop for my husband lol. I'm gonna miss him like crazy. :*[

He will be totally fine, seriously! When we leave our boys we also have somone stay with them and they do miss us like crazy but they get to have a diff kind of party on their own too. It is always hard leaving but trust me it wont hurt him as much as it hurts you.

I know how you feel, I left Sam with my mom for a week. Before leaving I looked back at that beautiful little mug and started crying! Definitely think it was harder on me than him!

I don't have kids but spike is like my baby. When my parents asked me why I was crying my dad was
Like "she is gonna miss her husband leave her alone!" and I was like "I'm going to miss spike!" lol I am soooo attached to my spike and couldn't imagine my life without him. :[ looks like we won't b able to video chat tonight bc by the time we get to pecos, Tx its gonna b like midnight and daddy and spike will prob be zzzzzzz lol. Hope u all have a good day!

awe you poor thing. This will be good for you both, sad as it sounds. It is always the hardest to leave them the first few times. gets easier I promise and the easier it is for you, the easier it is for the pups.

OH..this is exactly how we are feeling with Chester and the cruise we are taking in a couple of weeks. My husband keeps asking me if I think he'll pass as a "seeing eye dog" so we can take him on board. Considering that Chester is a bad baby bully - (read into this - he doesn't listen >.< ).. I told my husband I don't think so. :p
