Our air conditioning went out two weeks ago at the house we are renting. Unfortunately it took 12 days for the landlord to get around to fixing it. Long story short- she has a son who used to work HVAC and he is sort of slow with projects. She bought the equipment and it sat around forever waiting to be installed. -___-;; Of course this happens during the heat advisory week of August so we took Dexter to my boyfriend's parents house to stay with us until something was finally done. (And my cat went to my friend Laura's house because the BFs mom is allergic to cats...)
Dexter had a blast at the in-law's house. They have two dogs of their own. Shadow, a black lab, and Daisy a Shih Tzu. He played hard every day he was there, got lots of attention from the hoards of teenage girls that were in and out of the house, and found a place in their pack. By the time I got off of work at 5pm every day he was exhausted and always just passed out in my lap. He was really happy so I felt bad when I had to take him home yesterday. He was fine at the house, and tired from a whole day of being with his doggy friends. This morning he looked really sad. He wasn't as perky as he had been before and he just slumped down at my feet during breakfast and wasn't his usual obnoxious self he had been before the two weeks away from home.
I feel bad for him, but it is not possible at this time for me to get him a companion dog. :( Poor Dexter. I am going to try and take him to visit the other dogs tonight, and maybe leave him over there tomorrow afternoon while I run some errands.
It just bummed me out to see him so bummed out.
I gotta post pictures soon! He is getting HUGE!
