Forced vacation, Day 7

Home again, home again, jiggety jog. Arnie and I are back in OK (on the way home we learned how The Evidence(TM) supports Creation!).

Unfortunately, teh puppahs arent as happy as I am. Arnie spent the entire week playing with my parents ~1 year old black lab, Daisy. From the second we arrived to the second I drug him out of the backyard, these two wrestled/chased/tug-of-wared. I actually didnt get much sleep on my ‘vacation’ because Arnie was up at 5 am every morning, wanting to play. His front paws are red and swollen from playing so much. He has rug burn on his tummy from wrestling on the carpet… I went to a wedding Saturday/Sunday, and normally Arnie has really bad separation anxiety, but he didnt give a crap this time. He had a new best buddy. He and Daisy were inseparable this past week.

They had a good time:

But now the puppahs are depressed. Mom says Daisy has just been moping around the house, looking for Arnie. Arnie was Super Grump all the way home, and how hes just crashed on his bed:

Poor puppahs 🙁

    You should get Arnie a playmate! I suggest a kitten. 🙂
    Sleep well in your own bed!!

    Actually this just shows that you need two dogs. (We currently have four.) Dogs, being pack animals, really like the company.

    Stacy, a small kitten, 1-2 weeks old…they squeak. I hear fetuses are good for pits, too

    The squeaky toys are chewier and harder to swallow.

    Is there a chance that The Evidence(tm) is producable?

    Er… I mean – “reproducable”, I guess.

    I *really* mean – (tries *not* to smirk) – is it “Evidence”?

    This is pretty much the same way Max reacts every time we leave my dad’s house. You’d think he’d be happy because the scrappy little corgis are no longer nipping his face and trying to herd him. But apparently he really misses them.

    Awww, poor Arnie. Maybe he does need a playmate. How are you going to deal with two doggies in your place though? You might come home to find the couch has been eaten. If you do decide to get another animal, make sure he likes him/her first though, sometimes a dog can get along with a certain dog wonderfully and then hates some other dog.

    Yep, his ferocity is unmistakable. /sarcasm

    Do you know anyone else with a big dog? Maybe you could have play dates.

    Well, dags ARE social animals after all.

    I used to have a chow that would get severely depressed if there wasn’t another dog around.

    We heart you, Arnie!

    This just means he needs to be spoiled (more) rotten.
