Ironically, this is indeed my Dogs on Thursday post. I’ve mentioned to a few of you, and others have read comments from those in the know, so an explanation is in order.
That was taken a few weeks ago, when ALL the dogs decided with the Knight was the place to be. Take a good look, because
until the inlaws take vacationyou won’t see it anymore. For reasons known only to himself, Dae – the FIL – announced to the Knight on Monday that our dogs needed to start staying at home. Now, I’d discussed with BOTH of my inlaws that as soon as the weather turned just a bit warmer and we were able to get the pen renovated, they would be staying at home. But no, he couldn’t wait, so sweet Sissy is in her crate, and Mugsy is most likely on the sofa, a few feet away.
Shadow (the sheltie on the right for the newer readers) is perhaps suffering most. He belongs to Pop, Dae’s father and the founder of the family business, so it’s not likely that he’ll be told to stay home. Instead, he looks in every corner for his playmates, and will come rest his head on my knee. We’ll share a sad moment together, and he’ll crawl under my desk for a pout. Wish I could join him.
Never fear; the inlaws will soon take to their RV and head to Georgia for a week, and my babies will return to the office. Pop has been a delightfully wicked ally. He asks Shadow loudly, “Are you lonely?” or “You miss your playmates?” always within his son’s hearing.
For history’s sake, Fred never spent much time at the office. He got sent home too, by the same man, for similarly unknown reasons. Mugsy never came to the office unless he needed to – to go the vet – until Fred died. I thought everyone was enjoying Mugsy and Sissy, and it seems I was mostly correct…
This isn’t what I’d planned for DoT, but I under-estimated how closely you really do follow goes on here, in my little blogging corner of the world. Thank you for that, and for caring. Later today, I’ll post about my fun night last night.
