Hey Seamus!
Yes, Flynn?
What's that big blue cratey kinda thing mom has out?
It's called a suitcase, Flynn.
There's nuttin in it. Maybe I'll sleep there tonite.
No, Flynn. Mom is going to put other things in it. Lots of things.
Huh. Like our toys and stuff?
No, like her clothes. And stuff.
How come?!? Mom doesn't like it here anymore?
Of course she does! Mom is going on what humans call "a trip".
What's a "trip", Shamoo?
Well, you know when mom says "I'll be back after a while ?
Yeah.
A trip is just a lot longer than "a while". About eleventy times as long.
Oh... like lots of sleeps without her here?
Yes, Flynn! Good boy to figure that out! I'm proud of you!
Wuhl... can I have her side of the bed while she's tripping, then?
Oh Flynn... come on now. We'll work that out later. Okay?
Okey-dokey. Can we go outside now, Shamoo?
Sure thing. C'mon, buddy. You forget about that blue crate thing now...

That's cute. I always wondered what went on in their minds when we're gearing up for "a trip" without them. :)

Aww they're going to miss you, and I'm going to miss their conversations while you're away.

(wonder if Tud will post in her absence...)

Oh, those boys will miss their Mom, Nance.

Shadow quickly learned what Bill's overnight bag meant, and would droop and mope all day before he left.

My childhood dog Pepper knew what it meant when the boxes and suit cases came out. Dad was in the Air Force and it seemed we moved every 6 months as his job was updating and training staff to use the new equipment. Pepper would get his favorite toy and plop in front of the door when he saw them. We never left him but I think he was afraid we would forget to take him...it got to the point we started packing the last day as we were tired of upsetting him so much.

You should write a book about these two, I'd buy it! :D
Have a nice trip!

Lexi is kind of the same, though she does not mope that much. She sees my suitcase come out of the attic & she turns into an over the top velcro dog. I can't move without her being practically up my butt. She don't have it too bad though, she gets to spend time at her vacation home (aka grandma & grandpa's) when Momma travels.

Aww... Here's hoping their eleventy-times-the-normal absence goes quickly for them.

Slowly for YOU, Nance.

But quickly for them.....
