Today I had a little surprise – Mairi took me to see Mummy for the afternoon. Mairi had lots of appointments in London so she thought Mummy could use some company.
I have to say I felt a little strange today. I’ve been with Mairi for the last five days and had a ball of a time. When I came home to Mummy today, the energy level was really low – none of the excitement and running around, not much hugs. She didn’t hold me either.
At the end of the afternoon when Mairi returned, I was really happy to see her. And I was happy she took me with her when she left.
When I was in the hospital bed, I didn’t think much about not having the dogs next to me but last night, out of habit, every time I woke, I looked to see where they were. And every time I moved, I made sure they had their space. But seeing Darcy today was also difficult. I couldn’t give her a hug, couldn’t carry her and had difficulty getting down to her level. Maybe she felt my energy and was very quiet. Or maybe she was wondering why I wasn’t so excited to see her. I had to restrain myself.
But I know she’s in really good hands and having a whale of a time. It did made me feel a little bad to see her hurrying off because she knows where the fun is at the moment and lots of people fussing over her.
God, I hope that not her as well as George have decided that somewhere else is more fun than staying with me. 🙁
Time to get really fit again and so we can have fun altogether once more.
