Leaving my puppies...

Let me start this off with I HATE LEAVING MY PUPPIES!! They are my babies and I hate to abandon them for any length of time. This past year I have had to leave them on several occasions due to work trips and such. When I just had Jackjack, my sister FLEAS would take care of him. He always loved being over there but I was always worried that the kids would leave the door open and I would get a call that he's run off. This happened once but they had already got him back when they called.. When I got Abby and now had two dogs to leave behind It's too much for FLEAS with her own two dogs. My friend who lives with her dad then started being my petsitter. I know she loves my dogs a lot even though she has never taken care of a pet of her own I knew she would take care of mine. She has always been great and my dogs are happy when I return. I just worried as well that they would run off or that she would not take them out enough or what have you. March my boyfriend, Special K moved in and now I have live in help with my pups and petsitter. I love Special K very much and I know that he loves Jackjack and Abigail a lot. He gives them tons of love and he takes them for their night walk. When I'm gone I know he lets them sleep in bed with him and he comes home during the day from work and walks them and does what he can. Special K tends to work even more than he already does when I'm gone and that's the only reason I tend to worry. My babies love to be around me and I am a teacher so I tend to have plenty of time to spend with them. We like to go to the park and the beach and go for long walks. I know I baby them but they are my puppies and I can't help it.

Last night Special K jokingly said he was going to take our dogs to the kennel and I didn't think it was very funny. I have never had to take Jackjack to a kennel and since he was at the SPCA for two months and lost so much weight and does not handle a crate very well. I try to avoid it at all cost. I calmed down when he made sure I knew it was a joke....It BETTER be!!! :)

Well....I just have to trust the fact that Special K does what he can while I'm gone. I know he misses me and I miss him and the dogs very much. I'm thankful I have him in my life.

I know I have said this before and probably will say it again. I'm just a little bit from crazytown and people do call me the dog lady so I know I just worry too much about them.

I'll be gone for a week at camp next week and I'll just have to trust Special K. He's always been great and always will be when it comes to my dogs.


  1. Can't you just incorporate all of these things in one blog like most people? Now you're going to have 3 that you never update!

  2. Of course I can't. They all have different purposes. You don't have to read the ones you don't want to. :)
