Dog's Gone

Its 22.02 pm and I have just sat down . After a 13 hour shift, I have just taken Winnie and George down to their respective babysitters in town who will love em and pet em over the next week.
Winnie, hyperventilated and thundered around Norma's house in her usual stress head style..... Thankfully Norma is a bulldog fanatic and reassured me that they would sleep together if it is necessary to reduce any homesick nerves.......so Winnie's bloody well fallen on her feet!
George, I took to my sister's house and he somehow knew that I was going to leave him so became incredibly clingy when I tried to go.....he is still rather needy since Meg died........but he's in good hands.....it was sad to see him look so upset!
William goes to the kennels tomorrow..........
Hey ho xxx
Ps. The cottage is so quiet without them all..... No snoring from the kitchen

  1. Poor George. He is also getting over grief, you are not alone John. What is happening to Albert? I am sure Winnie will miss him.

  2. They will be fine. I'm dog and hamster sitting from tomorrow . The dog has to sit on my knee and have a cuddle first thing in the morning otherwise he puts his sad eyes in. My own dog looks at him with disgust. As long as neither of them eat the Houdini hamster we'll all have a good week.

  8. If you are sobbing for your pooches, you will receive broad stares in Broadstairs.

  9. We used to talk to the cats on the phone when one or the other of us was traveling. I think it confused them more than anything. Enjoy your holiday!

  12. Enjoy your time away .. you can always do what we did with our Pup .. whenever we went away, we brought him back presents, trying to buy his forgiveness. Sometimes it worked.

  13. I've had a couple of holidays without the dogs, but don't enjoy them much. I end up chasing other people's dogs for pats, and walks seem pointless. :)

    Poor George, thehamish is acting very clingy, thinking he is getting sick again.

  15. I always feel terribly guilty when I leave my animals to go on vacation. I'm sure they're not nearly as sad as I imagine they are.

    Enjoy your time away!

  16. My grandkitty will be arriving on Monday for his month long stay with us whilst my daughter and her hubby go on a road trip through Europe. We love having him, he seems to like it here and it means his humans don't worry about him. I like it just as much when we hand him back though!

  17. I often think that the agonies we go through when we fret over the welfare and known or presumed discomfort of our pets may well be more than they experience themselves. But of course we can never know that for sure.
    Have a jolly nice time away - at least while you're not thinking of little Georgie..

  18. When I look after my daughter's dogs they all get to sit on my knee for cuddles. It's ok with the Jack Russell, the Lurcher is a bit bony but the real problem is the 8 stone Staffy, there is more dog than there is knee, but I can't bear to leave him out!

  19. Good to hear that you will still be blogging on your hols…….I was worried about you and Rachel being away at the same time !! What will you do in Kent?

  20. It is always the downside of going away John, but you have to harden your heart - you need a break - and at least there will be no dog poo on the carpet to clean up when you return. Enjoy your break.

  22. It's just not the same without them is it :-(

    Yes, once you've hoovered the carpets and sofas stay clean, you can lie in bed for that extra bit of time without feeling guilty and there's no row of dogs watching you on the toilet. It's good for about two hours .... then you want their furry little bodies and joyous look on life back. They just bring a house to life don't they.

    Hope you have a wonderful time, they'll be so pleased to see you when you go and fetch them all home it will be worth the quiet time without them.
