My mom and dad went out of town this past weekend. I think they feel very guilty leaving me, but I really don't mind that much. Of course, I have to let them know how much I love and enjoy their company by displaying different behaviors before they go. Like for instance, I sulk and give sad eyes when they pull out their suitcases. And suddenly get very clingy by following them around from room to room.
But really, I don't mind that much. Before they go for trips, I usually get special walks in the park like this one Friday with my mom.
She even let me go off our regular trail so that I could sniff out a new yard!
And they always leave me in good hands by having my grandma, Rose come over to take me on walks in the evenings. My Aunt Rachel and Uncle Lee came by on Saturday to take me for a walk that turned into a run around the park. That was fun! And because I did such a good job keeping up with Uncle Lee, they gave me a special treat and took my picture to send to my mom and dad!
And guess what?! My parents are always sure to bring me a surprise when they come home from a trip! Today, I got a new squeaker and boy, I sure enjoyed that.
My mom and dad even let me take him apart and pull out BOTH of the squeakers inside. I think I made record time "dissecting," as I like to call it. They said they got him at some place called Petco, but I don't know what that is, because I've only been to Pet Smart.
We played outside in the big yard later, and then mom said I needed a bath. I really don't enjoy the bathtub that much, but mom always talks super sweet to me and then dad makes a big deal when I get out about how fresh and clean I am - so that makes it worth it :) Plus, they usually let me sleep a whole night after my bath without my collar. Mom says I look naked!
So if my mom and dad need to take a weekend away without me, I understand! I really had a great relaxing weekend, and enjoyed spending time with my grandma, aunt, and uncle.
Thanks for dropping by, as my mom says :)
