I was proud of myself. I only emailed my mom once a day to make sure all was well. She told us some stories about the dogs and how she got to learn their little habits. I also asked her if the dogs seemed to miss us at all. She said that Bebe went to our bedroom a few times looking for us....Manny seemed a little sad.... Unfortunately Chico had a seizure which I think could have been a result from the stress of us not being around since he has had stress-related seizures in the past.... And Monte was happy as ever. The funny thing is that although Monte seemed to care the least that we were gone, he was the one I thought most of. It was because every time we passed the Monte Carlo casino I would say, "awwwwww Monte!"
It was weird not being in our regular routine of feeding the dogs and letting them outside or having any of them to pet and snuggle with. While we walked around, I saw a few dogs being walked. All I wanted to do was pet them... But I was too shy to ask. So I just would stare and pout at the pups LOL
We had a really fun time over our few days away. It was a nice weekend getaway filled with fun memories. But nothing beats coming home to the dogs. I always thought that I knew the feeling of being loved.... But the moment that we came home and the dogs ran up to us, we had the most overwhelming welcome filled with love. It was absolutely amazing!!! I'm not looking to go away with the dogs again anytime soon... But I do feel better knowing that they can survive being cared by our family!
