Temper tantrum, fit throwin' . . .dogs

As you all know, Michael has been in the hospital for two weeks. The first week I was not home for 7 nights and days.

Home for one night. Didn't sleep too good because they played leap dog all night. One would move and another would jump into that spot next to me. GUYS! Just LAY down! Please!

Then I was gone for 2 more nights and days. . .

Do you know what happens with spoiled rotten fur babies when their Mama is gone for that amount of time?

They have a come apart! That's what! Temper tantrum, fit throwin', come apart. . .

Harlie Barlie has decided to eat books. AND she picks my favorite hardbacks. . .(It's like she knows they are special.)

Then her and Jack seem to fight over who's gonna get the book to finish it up! First it goes in the recliner then it heads out to the yard. . . geezzzzzz. . .

OR they decide that a chair has too much stuffing and proceed to take it out . . . .and the material off. . .

OR they mope. . .Crystal just lays in her bed and won't come out. . .

OR they pee. . . . . . all over 'our' bedroom. . .

OR they drag dirty clothes out to the back yard. . . .

OR they get ANYTHING that I have touched and haul it off, chew it up or whatever else they can think up.

THEY DO NOT LIKE MAMA BEING GONE FOR MORE THAN ONE NIGHT. .

I think I get the message. . .

Children. . what to do, what to do. . . siiiiiiiiigh. .  .

Anyone know a good dog sitter?

Any one want a herd of dogs for several days??

Just temporary. I proooomise. .And really my fingers are NOT crossed behind my back! Really! See I'm typin! (But I AM sittin here with my ankles crossed. . . .does that count??)

Cheers my friends! Kackle today! It is a glorious feeling!
Love and hugs,

My dogs act the same way. I've been home for a couple of weeks now since school is out and my dogs like it. Then Wednesday I had to go to a workshop for school and was gone all day. I came home to two piles of poop in the living room (I had just had the carpet cleaned the day before.) They have a doggie door so the only excuse is anger. Oh, brother!

I do (some of) those things when I want attention too! - G

As the sayin goes: Sounds like the signs of a dying dog.

I could just see a herd if dogs visiting for a couple days with Ward... he would FREAK OUT!
But me, I would love it!

The kids are just acting out, Mom. They will get over it but not until they destroy all your prized possessions.

Kackling as I type.
Hugs to you!

Been thinking of getting a second pup to keep Lucy company when we're away...she howls and cries. After reading your post...no I don't think so!

Now that Michael is getting better, maybe you'll be spending a little more time at home. You'll just have to give them all a little extra loving and maybe you're problem will be solved.

Either that or you better call in the Dog Whisperer.

Dogs have a way of letting you know when they aren't happy about being left home. It usually isn't pretty either...
