    Default My name is Margoo and I'm a sad dog person

    I don't really know when it happened. But I've become one of the persons I used to make fun of!!

    OH and I are in Canada at the moment on a trip to visit family and see the rockies. It's great - I love this country and its wildlife. We saw bears and I definitely have a soft spot for racooons. Yet, what really gets me going are the dogs who go for a run with their owners on the beach. I have even shown the family pictures of the pooches and ignored the glances they exchanged when I pulled them out.

    And we miss our pooches of course. Debating every day if it's wise to leave them in the kennel for almost three weeks and wondering how they feel about not being tucked in at night... There is hope though. We did not yet call home to find out whether the pooches are ok without us.

    We did 5 weeks in USA and Canada earlier this year. I spent the whole time worrying about the dogs but we got home and they loved the kennels

    Enjoy your trip!

    Never mind margoo, the horrid holiday will end eventually

    I fully understand your sadness, but I'm sure your family will be okay and happy to see you when you pick them up from their resort!

    I have learned to keep my dog pix to myself - but if someone else gets out pix of their children - I figure it's fair game...

    Along with nappy stories vs poo bag stories...

    Just came back from 10 days away and must say I really didn't give mine a thought as I knew hubby was looking after them and would tell me if there was a problem, just like when they were younger and in a kennel the owners would have also contacted me. I think at times we can be too precious and should, when we know they are in good hands, take the pressure off ourselves and enjoy what we have paid to enjoy. Worry is not going to make one speck of difference.

    Must admit though that all their training went out the window when I returned and they nearly knocked me flat and I was a cuddling mess with them, two hands and 3 dogs can be a hard equation.

    I reckon this is part of my problem. And OH's... he actually had a little meltdown last night because he is worrying so much. We trust the kennel where they usually go, but this time the owner is on holidays herself and has hired a replacement for her. We don't know these people and have only her word that they're reliable. It doesn't help that the're not picking up the phone... yes. We called meanwhile. Many times. With no success.

    Have you tried checking what time of the day you're calling? 1am, that's your post time - nobody is going to pick up their phone then. So if you're in Europe, calling before lunch time Europe time is good. If you're in North America - calling around dinner time (NY time) is good. Otherwise it's the middle of the effing night and I'm not going to appreciate the "we made it safely" text from my Mum in St Petersburg. Sigh.

    Otherwise I would be sending spies to check... ie someone you know who lives local who can go check for you.
