I knew something was happening when I saw Mummy packing my bag.
It meant two things:
- We’re all going on a trip
- I’m being sent away
Well, it turned out to be neither – not exactly as planned.
Yesterday George went to work with Sarah as Mummy was going to take me to the park for Mummy-and-me time before they go on hols together. But before then she left me at home so she could go to the dentist. But she never came back.
I waited all day which seemed a little unusual as she never leaves me alone for long. At about 1pm, Agnes dropped in to take me on a little walk to relieve myself but all I wanted to do was to go back home to wait for Mummy. Then George came home late in the afternoon, and he asked, “Where’s Mummy?”
“I don’t know” I said, “But I am glad you”re home as it’s been rather lonely here all day.”
Just then Praewa turned up and we were excited to see her. She had come to give us our supper.
Then Sarah came to take George and I went home with Praewa for the night, I snuggled with her and pushed Bubbles off the bed.
We took the train to Wimbledon Village where Bruno lives. Waiting for cues from Tammy as to what to do nextI sat quietly on the floor We arrived at Bruno’s and I sort of sensed that Mummy isn’t going to be coming for me..Bruno was trying out my blanket.We had supperAfter that we settled down in our respective places.

May’s comment: It was a sudden change of plans. Who would have thought that a sudden explosion of gall stones would take place two days before our trip. I was still hoping that all would be fine but alas not.
Thankful for a wonderful network of friends who stepped in to take care of the fur babies. Amazing how they all played their part – from Agnes, dog walk who stopped in mid-day to take Darcy out for relief, from Praewa who’s mother and Bubbles trailed along to feed them in the evening. Sarah immediately offered to take George for as long as it’s needed. And Tammy taking Darcy for the weekend before she’s off to House of Mutt. She doesn’t know that yet but she will be very, very happy once she’s there.
I can’t overthink this. But forever grateful for friends. Things happen.
