Thank you to all of you that commented on my last post. To those of you that sent condolences and also reassured me, or at least tried to, that our cute little Eskie boy, Bailey would be fine at the kennel. You were right, of course, he was...I can only equate the experience to leaving my daughter at daycare...only somehow worse, because Caitlin had never been abandoned and then rescued just prior to being dropped off.
However, I made sure to give my husband explicit instructions on what to say to them about the situation when he took Bailey in. He explained that we had only rescued him 2 months ago and that he might feel abandoned again...I guess we have done a good job of making him feel very loved...
We had a pretty good weekend despite the reason for our trip. My FIL's cousin's are a delightful couple that have a pre civil war home that is huge and lovely, if not pink. They made us feel very welcome.
When we called to check on Bailey we were told that he was doing fine and that "he is very cute and he is a lot of fun" hmmm, I thought...they sure do know his personality...that's a good sign...
Well, we barely made it to the kennel prior to closing and so had to go straight there...no crate...no lead...Bailey is known to be a poor rider...carsick...I was to hold him on my lap...joy...
Oh, the picture? That's Caitlin and Bailey a while after we arrived home...they are having a love fest...He is just a little sleepy...He may have had a good time...but I think he is glad to be home!
Bailey is a cute little bundle of love!
PS, I think he liked riding in my lap on the way home...as someone that tends to suffer from motion sickness myself, I can tell you that being able to see where you are going makes a big difference...Bailey did not throw up on me!!
