    About two months in a kennel? Poor Farley. LOL

    I believe that dogs don’t think their owners are another species, but part of their dog pack.

    Back in 2001 I had a heart attack and spent a few weeks in hospital. When I got home all I got from my now ex wife was “you’re back then”. But the two dogs Sooty and Pickle were all over me with licks, barks and general bouncing off the wall. True love and loyalty from the pooches. Unforgettable.

    When DH comes home from work, the cats all run to see him. Some of them may glance over their shoulder indifferently at him when he comes in the house, but they all run in there when they hear him pull into the driveway.

    Yeah, but you get the same thing even if you just went out to get the mail.

    That’s why they call it “vacation”.

    It was even a vacation from complaining!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Farley was long gone when this was drawn. I relied on my friends’ pooches for dog related input, and they were always keen to keep me up to date regarding kennels, shots, skunk encounters, and table manners. There was also a vet in the family to keep me in the know!

    It is always nice to be welcomed home.

    Awww, very sweet! My cats don’t leave us (mostly me) alone when we get home after vacation. One especially will keep me up all night walking on me, purring, nudging me with her head. Reverses any rest that I may have gotten on vacation, but it’s sweet.

    They don’t know if you are gone forever or what. Being in a kennel is hard on animals.

    I think I’m just as bad as Farley. When I go away on vacation, I spend a significant part of my time looking forward to getting home to my pets.

    Maybe, but isn’t it nice to feel like someone loves you?

    I know the feeling. My wife is diabetic, arthritic, etc and requires 24/7 care.
    But several years ago, when I was down three days with the flu, she checked on me only two times.
    And one of those times was to ask “Where’s the check book?”

    Awwww! That’s precious! I had dogs that really missed my parents and i when we went anywhere. They were like Farley-hugs and kisses all around! :)
