World-Weary

World-Weary
Where: Home
When: April 20, 2010

My girl is finally starting to show her age. It was a stressful week for her at the boarding kennel while we were gone, it seems to have taken a lot out of her. Several days of rest have helped though, she's perking up now. This photo was actually taken just before the trip.

Poor pup! Looks like you captured the mood well. I can't stand to leave Shep at a boarding facility so we have a sitter so he gets to stay by the park and be doted on by a retired couple (at a hefty cost, of course). Let me know if you want other rec's for her (there's even a dog camp upstate).

Any and all recommendations would be great - the kennel is pretty good, as kennels go, but there was a thunderstorm one night while we were gone and she went nuts in her crate and ripped the nail sheath off one dew claw, and had welts on her lips from biting the cage. She doesn't normally lose her shit like that - she doesn't like thunderstorms, but she'll just hide under the bed or my desk, depending where I am, and get through them.

They have something which is designed for the dog to stay at home, and they come by 3 or 4 times in a day, but I'm worried about leaving her by herself for the length of time that entails, I'd rather someone spend the night with her.

This was easier when we lived in slightly more rural areas (including London), where people had houses and space to keep her there. That was nice. And the people who did this always loved Piper enough that they just kept her with the family dogs, rather than crating her at night.

About This Blog

This is my first blog attempt. It hasn't been kept up over the last year, for some reason being pregnant really ate into my creativity, and I picked up the camera very rarely. I am thinking about starting it up again, but am not sure what direction to take it in.
