It’s Friday and it means Charlie goes home to his Daddy at day’s end.As much of an annoyance as he can be, stealing our toys insisting that the bed under Mummy’s desk is his and taking over our place at bedtimeEven when George confronts him, he does not budgeWe really do get on
He is a part of our lives
It is nice having his company
But come Friday evening, he’s gone again …And it’s just us two – and Mummy. We do miss him when he’s not here.
May’s comment: It’s not easy having three and especially when Charlie is such a needy pup. He definitely has separation anxiety. When he’s left with Darcy and/or George at our place, he’s absolutely fine, except I get mauled by him when I return. He needs to be carried and hugged before he settles down again. My poor other two just look on and wonder why they don’t get the hugs and cuddles.
I made the mistake of leaving him with someone he didn’t know when I took Darcy to the movies. I had left George with another neighbour and couldn’t leave the both of them at one place. Even though my neighbour was at home with his two dogs, Charlie pee’d and he poo’d in my neighbour’s house, not once but twice all within three hours. That didn’t go down well. Oops! But it made me realise that he does feel comfortable at our home and he can be left as long as he’s with Darcy and George.
