“Goodbye” doesn’t mean forever

All good things must come to an end. I had an unexpectedly longer stay at House of Mutt than had originally planned.  But today, I take leave to go home to Mummy.

Bye Mutts! I’ve enjoyed this past week with you – whether we were running through wooded paths or across open fields11222060_1224525174231403_5919626261526026626_n all of us getting soaking wet together 12038540_1230699866947267_7750230728054474138_nAnd falling asleep together in the living room.11063580_1229474347069819_3335277318721634903_n 12009841_1229663967050857_6198021471337668025_n 12088314_1231008256916428_4096556306899905190_nAs always, I was really, really happy – to see Sarah, the familiar surroundings and then there’s my Hector!  unnamed-20He’s the resident dog at House of Mutt. He’s the familiar face and always gets my full-on greeting of licking, bouncing and upside-down’ing.

I am a little shy with the others whom I have never met, so I put on my aloof look, pretending I’m not so interested.   All it takes is a good walk/run around and I overcome my awkwardness and shyness with them.12033170_1222924471058140_1514445477833575394_nAfter that, then my lovely old, Hector is slightly ignored while I romp and play with the young ones.

But when a new dog arrives at the House of Mutt and I am uncertain about the new “mutt” I will go and sit next to my trusted Hector in our meet-and-greet process.  unnamed-22Hector, may not be the most exciting daily companion but he will always be my loyal and dependable rock.

So, Hector, I leave you again but I will be back soon in the near future. IMG_3368 I love you …IMG_3369And when I return, I shall look for you my friend and my rock.IMG_3370May’s comment: Can’t wait to see you my little Cockapoo!
