So tomorrow my fiancee and I leave for Vegas. We are meeting with 35 close friends and family, getting married and having a nice hiking honeymoon in the national parks.
This means we have to kennel Roslyn for almost 2 weeks. Up until now i was just mildly worried and making plans for her to be as comfortable as possible. She will be kenneled by the same people that taught our obedience classes (it is 2 officers that lead the K9 unit... so she will be surrounded by GSD) and also my fiancees parents are kenneling their Brittany with Roz.
But now... as I look at her happy little face, it breaks my heart that i have to leave her for so long. I wish she could go with us and explore Zion, Bryce and the other parks. I want to take pictures like John Wolff and have Roslyn conquering the Emerald pools and weeping rocks. Her red fluffy hair gently swaying with the slight canyon breeze.
alas, it is not to be. :*(
The rest of my animals (2 cats, bunny, and hermit crabs) will be staying with the house sitter. She has to work and doesn't really have time experience with dogs, which is why Roslyn is being kenneled. And yes, i will miss my other pets a ton (with the exception of Nate's fat, lazy cat *wink). It's just that i have left them before... this will be the first for Roz.
To be completely honest, i never knew how in love i could be with a dog until i had Roslyn. I am an animal lover, but this borders enthrallment (Corgi mind control is a real problem in this household).
How do you handle parting with your beloved corgis?
