Today is my turn to say goodbye.
I know it because THAT bag has made an appearance. And I know where I will be going.
I spent the morning hanging out with Mum as we went about doing everyday things. Camilla sent us a couple of videos that of George enjoying the countryside with Jaffa and Mini.
But today, my bag is packed
I associate that bag with the House of Mutt. That has always been my bag – filled with my food.
Can I bring Teddy?
The door bell. Is that the pick up from House of Mutt?
Time to go … Mum, are you coming to see me off?
Hmmm. Why am I sitting in the back? I always sit in the front seat!
Bye Mum. There’s a reason for this madness I am sure …
May’s comment: And off she went …
She will have the best time, I know. But parting is always difficult. This time she didn’t jump with excitement. And she would rise out to the car – ready to leave as quickly as possible and would tell me off for coming with her. This time she kept looking back – she knew where she was going but she wasn’t as excited as she usually has been. Did she know this was different?
I returned to a very still home – no wagging tails to meet me at the door. I do take that for granted and it is times like this that reminds me how much they are a part of my life – and how empty it would be without them.
But guess who came to stay unexpectedly?
Can’t ever refuse a Charlie visit.
He didn’t have anyone to take him today, and since I’m not going in till noon tomorrow, Charlie and I can hang out. Made arrangements for dog walker to take him tomorrow while I’m gone. And he’ll be going home tomorrow night. But for tonight, I have him to cuddle with.
