Red face Going on Vacation

Ok guys, The wife and I are leaving for vacation in less than 2 weeks!!!!

I'm VERY nervous about leaving Beamer.. I know he will be well taken care of, I'm just worried about him being upset with us for leaving him for a week!!!!! Will he still love us when we get back??

Ok guys, I need to hear positive stories from all your past experiences leaving for vacation...

Thanks!
Ryan

Here's the positive:

You get one heck of a happy/loving greeting!!!!! Lots and lots of puppy kisses and...Gucci slept on my chest for a few nights making sure I didn't leave!!!!!

I'll skip the negatives, but who's babysitting? I'd really show them how to brush Beamer right so you don't come home a big mat that can't be tamed. How long are you gone?

Have fun!

We will be gone for 1 week only. So not toooo bad, but I guesss I will miss and worry about him more than he will.. i hope.. I just dont want him to be depressed and wonder why the hellllllll we are not around for 7 days?!!?! so sadddddd...

Helen (whitbymom) will be keeping Beamer all safe and sound for us! 1 good thing is that he will be busy playing with Oreo...

Ryan, He will have so much fun playing with Oreo and the kids, It will be like a vacation for Beamer too.

Don't worry, Beamer will be happy to see you when you get home.

Ryan, I am freaking out too as I will be in Brazil or two weeks in January and my fiance works really long hours so we will have to get a dog walker to come in and break up Kubrick's day for him. I'm really sad about leaving him.

Oh Ryan, what a perfect situation. Beamer will feel like he is on vacation too!!! When I and DH went on vacation for 9 days last year. I was so worried that Jasper (didn't have Cash yet) would be happier with the dog sitter and wouldn't remmeber me. Well Jassy practically leaped into my arms. The kisses did not stop. and he wouldn't leave my side until he fell asleep- and then he slept for two days he was so tired from all the play with the other dogs. Do not worry- can you get a better sitter than Helen and Oreo?

Oh! He will have a WONDERFUL time with Oreo! Heck yeah! That's like a *perfect* arrangement because Helen will certainly know how to brush him or any Hav-issue that arises.

Worry not, Ryan! I think he'll do better than Gucci...who stayed home with my daughter, but was GLUED to the front door waiting for me to come home *tear*

I missed her terribly, but the weekend flew by, and so will your vacation.

Although, speaker phone might not be a good idea, I made the mistake of having my daughter put me on speaker phone and Gucci cried and looked for me for an hour or two.

Last year we went to Japan for 2 weeks and I was so nervous about Dora. It takes her awhile to warm up to new people. The girls always stay with my mother in law (yeah, I drove 5 hours to drop them off there before leaving!) and I was shocked when we came back. Dora jumped all over me kissing me and we got out our toy (Dora and Belle always get a present when we leave them) and Dora grabbed her toy and ran and jumped on my MIL lap. I think it was great for her to connect with Grandma since Isabelle has always been favored by Grandpa. Dora now let Grandma into her circle so us leaving was a good thing!

Kara- really? My girls can't recognize my voice on phone or recording! I always thought it was weird but then thought maybe because they are so sensitive to sound that they detect the change.

Gosh, I can't say for certain? I wasnt' here...just going what my daughter told me. LOL, But then again, it could've been a coincidence because Kelly (dd) said that Gucci would look for me every day and/or sit at the door for hours.

I think it was harder for her in the sense that she was home and it would've been better had I taken her to someone like you and Ryan.

Hmm..Maybe your right and I should always question the perception of a teeny bop? lol OR..it was the words I said?
