Vacation? Without moi?

Mom and Dad have been running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Seems they’ve been planning a “vacation” and are getting ready for it. I know what a vacation is, but I don’t understand how they can have a vacation without me. Seems they are planning to go to California for a week or so and have no plans to take any of us dogs along. Now, I can see not taking Ollie or Finnegan, but why leave me at home? I’d enjoy the 80 degree, humidity free San Diego weather more then they ever would…and the beach too! Mom said that they are going to leave Ollie and I with Grandma and Grandpa and Finnegan has to got to the kennel. I don’t think I’ve been away from mom for this long since they brought me home to live with them. I sure am going to miss them and I know mom is going to miss me…she keeps telling me so. I keep telling her that there is only one solution for this…take me too, but she says they cannot. Hub-bub.
Anyway, I won’t be checking in with any of you friends for a bit over a week or so cause grandma won’t let me on her computer there…something about my nails on the keyboard…sheez! So friends, take care and I’ll see everyone in just over a week!!

Well, bad news about your mom and dad not taking you on vacation. Good news about getting to stay with Grandma. Bad news about no computer. Good news about the guild trip you can give your mom when she gets back. I'll bet if you lost a little weight (see mom, I was pining away!) she would really feel bad.

Hey Mackie, I'm sure you'll have a great time staying with grandma! I'm sure the guilt of leaving you will mean extra treats/toy/whatever! J x

PS It was good chatting on Sunday!

Hi Mackie,

It's too bad about your folks not taking you with them - I know how you feel. When my mom goes away she leaves me and Jessie behind too. Sheesh! At least you get to stay with your Grandma - I hear that they love to spoil grand-dogs!

Tell your mom and dad to have a great time and not to feel guilty about leaving you behind (wink.)

Your pal, Smitty

Mackie, Going to Grandma's?? Be sure to tell her of your special diet of all of your fav dishes!! And ice cream after every meal! Good ideal to Gus about the weight loss, but with that ice cream, it could be tough. Hang in there, Man!

Happy barks,

Oh poor Mackie,
They're leaving you??? Geez, why can't they take you with? We hope you have a fun time at grandma's house though. We know she treats you very well. Maybe your Mom will miss you so much that she'll come back early, hehehe. Be sure to put her on a really big guilt trip when she comes back. That way maybe she won't leave you again for a vacation.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
