Our corgi cross is 4 years old - we rescued her 2 years ago and she is the most devoted dog I've personally seen. (but she's the only corgi i've ever known)
I currently live in a small town in Northern Alberta, but my husband has gotten a new job that will require him to train for approx. 3 months - in Calgary (which is 6 hours away). The hotel that we are in only allows dogs 20lbs and under so that rules out my "Tuesday". Our in-laws have offered to watch her while we are away, but I'm worried she'll forget about me. She's my shadow all of the time. What do you all think. How will such a separation affect her? Any suggestions?
that is abou the sweetest thing I've ever seen!
I've taken my corgi to a few hotels that only require 20-30lb dogs. She's never been turned down. But honestly, how could you turn down a corgi?? You should be fine.
And, she won't forget you.
George Carlin (I think it was Carlin) used to do a great routine about dogs vs cats. Part of that routine was about how ANY amount of time to a dog was FOREVER. So.....even if you leave the house and go out to the car, forget something and come back in, a dog will greet you with the same amount of joy and excitement as if you were gone for a week.
My husband and I think about this all the time, because it's so true! So I would say, don't worry- to your furbaby it's all forever, and she'll not be able to tell the difference between those months and your daily trip to work.
