All my bags are packed...
A cool wet nose presses up against my bed warm face. "Mommy, I saw the suitcases. You're leaving on a jet plane. I don't know when you'll be back again."
Poor puppy. The resident canine doesn't quite understand time. She gives me one of those 'omg you've been gone so long whole body wiggle greetings' even if I've only been gone twenty minutes.
Ahh well, she gets to stay in her own home. The house sitters are here and Sophie has already over-written all my dog care instructions with her own - more treats, more walks, more treats, more treats.
This 79 pound German Shepherd - Alaskan Malamute will not starve. She'll sleep in her own bed every night and get lots of lovies - but not quite as many treats as she would like.
And the travelers? Well we'll be fine too. With Schwartz von Bear in charge of the tours, adventure is always assured.
Time to go. See y'all back here in three weeks or so.
