I was not home this past weekend… I was out
partying like a rockstar being a totally responsible adult in Atlantic City. Hubby was doing the same in South Beach…didn’t I mention we have a lot of weddings and wedding related affairs coming up? I wasn’t kidding.
So, lucky us that I was able to bribe a friend I’ve met through volunteering at BARCS to camp out at our place. Well, lucky Chocko I should say. Usually, we do a lot of dog swapping around here. Between Chloe, Tyson, and now Molly (see below) thrown into the mix, there is a lot of swap-a-bull dogs to go around.
But, since everyone seemed to be traveling, there was a lot of scrambling and ‘what to do with the dogs?‘ I’m not comfortable boarding Chocko yet, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be. Knox was a doggie day care supastar but I’m not sure that’s Chocko’s groove (I’d say he’s dog selective…I think…which would count him out for daycare). Besides, it’s been just under 2 months and I wanted him home. Stability. He’s still pretty anxious so a new environment wasn’t what I was going for.
But he got a whole lot more love then I ever imagined. Here are just a sprinkling of iPhone (unedited) pics that were sent my way over the weekend… Knowing your dog is in good, capable, loving hands? PRICELESS.
I wish I was able to be this at ease every time I left him. What do you all do when you travel? I’m always looking for suggestions/ideas!
And a big shout out to J for taking great care of our boy (and providing us with lots of pics from the weekend– all photo’s courtesy of J’s iPhone!)
