Our own little calm before the storm

These lazy mornings in the gallery after the dog park are becoming a real pleasure. I am so fortunate to be able to bring Booker with me instead of leaving him in his crate at home for hours on end. He has made friends up and down the street, people who stop in for a quick hello or a few minutes worth of wrestle-petting.

Next week, I am going out of town, though. We think that the best option will be to have Booker go to doggy daycare. That will be five days, from open to close.

Tomorrow is a test run. I'll take him over in the morning and David will pick him up after work. If there are issues, we have a few days to find a "plan B."

EDIT! Boy are we lucky that we planned a trial run. Camp Canine requires a Bordetella vaccination. Booker got all his shots on Monday, but NOT that one. The vet only does that upon request for dogs that must have it. So the vet is faxing his records to Camp Canine and I am running up there tomorrow morning at 8am to get the missing shot. Then I will drop Booker off for an experimental day at doggie daycare.

Good thing David didn't find this out on Monday morning, after I was already gone. That would have been a major wrench in his day. He will be fine dropping Booker off in the morning and picking him up after work. That is assuming the day goes smoothly tomorrow.

Plan B....Ship him to me. I will keep him company and we can play lots.

Plan C, he can come up here and we can try and find some raccoons to play with us. I'll even share my cookies.

Oh Booker! How nice to have a big sofa for yourself! Doggy daycare is fun with lots of butt-sniffing with other dogs!

Booker Baby,

Please tell your H-man that we are on the opposite side of the Cubbies/Red Birds rivalry. Our Dogdad is from St. Louis and Mom converted to the Cardinals (from the Yankees/Phillies) when she and he got married eight years ago.

We are very interested in Camp Canine, so please report!!

Hope your H-Mom has fun wherever she is going next week!!!

xx Jake and Just Harry

We hope your trial run goes smoothly. Thank goodness you had planned ahead. We can't wait to hear how Booker likes Doggy Day Camp.

Or he could come to Georgia. We love those coonhounds!! And we don't require bordatella.

love & wags,

H-Mom is certainly smart to plan for the trial run! Booker, we have an award for you! Come and have a look!
