Dad is going away for a couple of days on Sunday.
I have been giving this a lot of thought the last day or two.
At first I was a bit worried that I would miss him rather a lot, as it is usually Dad who is first up in the morning and it is him that gives me my breakfast. And it’s Dad that does most of the cooking too. I like to watch him cook, he sometimes accidently “drops” a bit.
But then I suddenly realised that it means I will get Mom all to myself! I won’t have to share her. We can curl up together on the sofa without Dad’s feet getting in my way, and I like to stretch out.
Also, as she won’t have Dad to talk to, it means she will talk to me more, which I always enjoy. I don’t always know what she is saying exactly, but it’s nice to have her full attention.
It will be strange without him here though. I will miss his smile in the morning and the way he ruffles my ears.
Like most dogs I think, I like routine. I like things to happen as they always do, it makes me feel secure. I hope Mom gets up early like Dad does, or I will have to wake her up!
Sometimes changes are nice ones, like when Mom doesn’t go to work, and I have her home all day, but this is a big change. Half of my family will be missing!
I think I am going to miss him, I will practice a super special happy dance for when he comes home
