|Beautiful weather for a road trip!|
We always leave Rita with my sis & her dog Reggie when we travel, but since all my siblings were going, that wasn't an option. The hubs stayed behind, but we knew he'd have a crazy-busy work week, so I arranged for a local dog-walking/training company to come in every day for walkies.
This was the first time leaving Rita alone with Daddy for more than one night, so I'm pretty sure she was confused. The service was really nice because every day they'd send me a message about how Rita did on the walk (always a glowing report) along with a photo.*
Some days she looked less than thrilled. Poor kid was missing her mama! (I think she looks so cute, if somewhat confused, in this first pic.)
|"Who are you and what have you done with my Momma?"|
|"Normally my Momma walks me. I'm not sure about this."|
|"Has anyone seen my Momma?? Siriusly. This isn't funny anymore."|
|"Well, if Momma has abandoned me, at least it's nice to get out and about."|
|"Whoo-hoo! I'm a streaker!"|

Do you feel guilty and worry when you have to leave your dog behind?
