Georgie and I had some quiet time late yesterday afternoon.
We have our brawls (usually over food) and we play hard, but of late we have also spent quiet times together. But it was particularly poignant yesterday – maybe because he knows Mummy and I will be going away tonight – and sadly he’s not coming with us.
She kept looking at George when he opened his eyes looking at her wondering – what are you looking at?
May’s comment: This morning we awoke to those big eyes looking at me. The time leading up to travelling without one or both of them is always the saddest part of leaving.
I have to choose Darcy or George to leave behind because I can only fly with one in cabin.
Darcy is of course the more seasoned traveller but George would be a lot easier to handle.
At the same time, George is easier for someone else to take care of – and he has so many takers. He’ll be staying with Kim and he will love playing with Bobby.
So the choice was quite obvious but wasn’t easy.
Still waiting for that Euromillion win or the man with the private jet to turn up. Whichever or whoever comes first is fine with me. That way I will never have to worry about taking both doggies whenever and wherever I travel to.
I thought it was particularly sweet that their paws were touching each other as they stayed that way on my bed yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t bedtime. It was in the afternoon and they sat together like that.
George only moved his head because I went in to take their photo.
