I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

The countdown

Stumpy and I are getting ready to head east for a month. Stumpy knows someone is going but she is not sure exactly who. She sees the suitcases and knows what they mean. She is so afraid she will be left behind. Stumpy suffers from separation anxiety and me going to work, in the morning, is enough to push her over the edge, even though she comes with me every day. The suitcases have her in total turmoil. She's underfoot, in my bags, taking things out of my bags and doing anything she can to remind me not to forget her.

Poor girlie. How can she NOT know she's a permanent fixture, in my life. In the two years we have been partners, she has only been left for a couple of hours at a time, and that hasn't happened very often.

The picture above, is Stumpy's petfinder picture, she was 6 months old, about 15 pounds and looking scared to death. Cute as a button, though!!! I couldn't resist her then, anymore than I can now.

Leave her behind... AS IF!!!!!

I hope you and Stumpy have a fantastic trip out east - yippee! That picture is too cute - I would not have been able to resist either. In fact, L's Petfinder picture was very similar to that!
