My humans are going on vacation! And the worst part is, they are not taking me with them! Every summer my humans go on vacation for a couple of days, and each time, they drop me off at doggy daycare. Now, I like it at my daycare, and I always get good reviews from the daycare employees, but I also get a little nervous for the first couple of days. I mean, how do I know if my humans are coming back for me or not?!?! At my daycare they have a little swimming pool for dogs, a shaded outside area for us doggies to play in, a playset for us inside, and our own little rooms, that are next to each other. I am able to play all day, with a nap and dinner break in between play time. And when it is time for us doggies to go to bed we can lay down on our very own cots (or any bed that our humans brought with us.) Now this is fun and all, but it is also very stressful to be away from my family for a week, and I am usually a bit hesitant about playing with the other dogs there (some of them are really big and hyper, and as a small, sometimes timid, dog, I don't know how do deal with it.) My humans always bring my favorite toys for me to play with, and that makes me feel better when we are in our rooms at night, and before breakfast. But, unlike most doggies, I never hold a grudge agaisnt my humans for leaving me to have fun (without me), I am just really happy and excited when they come and pick me up. (But this doesn't mean that I am ok with them going to far off places to have fun adventures, while leaving me behind!) I will just be glad when it is all over, and life goes back to normal.
