While I am always excited about my trips, there is the flip side and a little sadness about leaving home. What’s the hardest part for each of you about leaving home? For me, it’s leaving my kids but they hate it when I talk about them in the blog so I’ll move right on to number two, my dogs.
My dogs have learned that when they see suitcases, it means that I’m going away which they do not like. Their first reaction is to (and this is true), try to get into the suitcases. Whenever we leave a suitcase open that they can get to, they jump into it.
We make a point of not letting them see the suitcases but they still seem to sense when we are about to go away and they give us the big sad eyes look.
In fact, we almost always get a house sitter so the dogs aren’t alone much and this time, the house is full of people who the dogs love so its hard to really believe that they are suffering.
Of course, when we get back home, we can look forward to them going beserk, spinning in circles, barking, laughing, rolling, and spinning some more.
