I’m back! Aside from having to leave Doug unexpectedly in November when I had an emergency hospital stay, or here and there for a quick overnight (both of which he barely noticed I was gone), this was the first time I have left Doug for an extended time.
He did great! I’m honestly not sure he missed me all that much and that is exactly how it should be. I had a glorious week in the Bahamas and he had an awesome week with his Denise.
Some photos from paradise…
I will say, when I came in the door from being gone, Doug’s whole body was wiggling with joy. Everyone should get to experience someone wiggling with delight for them like that!
I also go to experience Doug’s first snow with him! He loves the snow until he doesn’t love the snow, that usually takes about 4 minutes. Dude takes after his brothers, none of them likes to be wet!
His first snow paw print…
And his exhaustion post snow romping…
I’m off the rest of this week in preparation for my new work schedule. I’ll be going into the office more, which is going to be a big change for me and for Doug. I have him set up to have two walks on the days I go in, so all in all I think he’ll be ok.
Today we are getting some house guests and those visitors include a dog! I’m excited to see how Doug does with another dog in the house. I got extra bowls out and he didn’t even notice. When I got one of his old crates out, he promptly hopped in it and took a nap.
I love that he is so easy-going. I hope life never disrupts that.
So, I’m back! Doug did great! We are excited to spend some time with house guests (two and four-legged) and next week, we will embark on the next chapter work-wise.
Hope you all are enjoying your week!
xoxo, Tracey & Doug
