|This is Douhlie, in the car and ready to ride!|
I picked up a little traveling companion along the way. He was a good companion in some ways; he did not require walks before bedtime or early morning. He did not bark either and rode cutely in the top of my purse. He was welcome in restaurants and everywhere I went. But he didn't wag his tail and look at me lovingly. At night he sat by the computer, he was not warm and cuddly. Plus, he didn't lick my face! I was ready to get my real dogs back this morning!
I know they were ready to come home, too. For one thing they are very tired. I suspect that it is just a round-the-clock-barking-party at the kennel! They all keep looking at me like, "Mom, why did you leave us in that place? Why couldn't we just stay with you? You kept talking about going bye-bye, but we know that bye-bye means that we get in the car and ride somewhere. We don't understand why we had to stay there, but are so glad you are back with us and we are at our home!"
