I was away on business for the last three days. Frodo didn`t get to visit with his best friend, my sisters Cairn Terrier. He went for lots of walks but apparently it just wasn`t enough. This morning I set off for my morning walk. It took 5 minutes to convince him to walk the opposite direction than his friend Annie`s house. I could see the look in his eyes and knew he was pining for her. Luckily he was able to go and spend the afternoon there. A full 5 hours of roughhousing broken up with naps together. Apparently by the second day of my trip Annie the Cairn Terrier was refusing all walks. If she wasn`t going to see Frodo she was not interested. She just laid on her back deck watching the gate to see when Frodo would finally arrive. I can see why people often have two dogs. Luckily for me I`ve been able to make the daily visits work so that Frodo gets doggie time without the need to have another dog in our home. And I have a guaranteed dog sitter in the family as well!
