    DefaultHe was only 8 months old the last time....how did he remember?

    16 months ago, we left for a two week vacation. The night before we left, my wife packed the big Suitcase and set it by the front door. Merlot, who was 8 months old at the time, was driven to the kennel the next day for boarding. We have not been on a vacation since. We are celebrating our 40th wedding Anniversary and leaving on a two week Caribbean cruise this Thursday, and my wife packed the same big suitcase and set it by the front door. Merlot, after seeing it, has been acting depressed, tail not wagging and mopping around the house. I think he must remember.

    We moved frequently when I was a child as dad was in the Air Force. Anytime a suitcase would come out Pepper went and got his plastic turkey leg (favorite toy) and would sit in front of the door. So I agree dogs have a great memory. Have fun on your trip Merlot will be ok.

    I'm amazed and in awe of your wife being packed so early!! I'm one of these people who chuck everything into a bag 10 minutes before I'm due to leave

    And yes it's incredible what memories our dogs can have.

    Won't someone please feed me!
