However, as much as he's going to enjoy himself and the lack of nap-induced crying, C-dog is also going to miss us. You see, G is Chase's favorite playmate, and C-dog ranks No. 1 on G's list of buddies, too. They follow each other everywhere. And they eat each other's food, much to my dislike. They are good buddies.
I also have this feeling that while C-dog is in Texas, he's not going to get to do much lounging on the furniture. His newest cozy spot in our home is on the recliner, and I'm pretty sure there are no recliners for him in Texas. And my gut tells me that the trainer won't allow me to send along a recliner for my dog so he can relax at the end of a hard day.
And I would be lying if I didn't say I wasn't going to miss him a great deal. Who's going to snuggle me while I read during my quiet time? And who's going to bark and greet me when I walk into the door? And who's going to clean up all of the messes G makes during lunch and dinner? (Oh, wait, that would be me and the vacuum!) Yes, I know that he's just a dog, but he's my dog. And I'm going to miss him while he's on vacation. I should have taught him how to write postcards and send pictures while I was teaching him how to give Little Cutie a bottle. ;)
