Now that Mama is home as opposed to being at work, I follow her around a lot…well really, all of the time, which we both thought was ok…until……………..she read something on Facebook that quoted the Caesar gentleman who is brilliant with dogs. This article says that my following Mama suggests that I am anxious. Now we are both puzzled. We like spending time with each other. I do get underfoot sometimes, but we sort that out. I don’t destroy anything while she is out of the house, mostly I play with my toys or snooze. I do get miffed sometimes when she leaves and I wasn’t given a ton of notice, so if the doors to the garbage can are not securely fastened with a rubber band, I have been known, just a VERY few times mind you, to get in there and pull the garbage out. Mama tries to include me on trips, as I am an excellent guest, and ALWAYS get invited back – but there are, a very few times when I cannot be included . During those trips whilst I am boarded, she could watch me in my Villa at the Kennel via her phone should she care to. Dr. Pokey and our neighbor, Uncle Herb, a retired Vet, have both told her over and over that dogs don’t have any concept of time, so she could go to Europe with her friends for ten days and it would be just dandy with me. She is still mulling that bit of Vet wisdom over.
