Next week there's going to be a change in how we do things. Normally, if the people go away for awhile, they take you to your favorite place, aka doggie day care, and leave you there. This time, we're going to have you stay with a person. You'll like her, and she's extremely happy you're coming to stay with her. Please be a good dog while you're there. Do not eat things off her counter, fart in her face, woof at nothing or any of the other behaviors you...delight...us with on a daily basis. You will have a good time, I promise! You can even bring your birds with you, so she can have the joy of listening to Angry Birds noises at 6 am.
Also, my dog, your people will come back for you. We will always come back for you. Don't mope and be sad. Be a good happy dog while we're gone.
