The Long Ride Home
We've had a vistor for the past month, my dad's dog, which he decided he could no longer take care of, and so my mother said that she would take Pete. So in the interim, till we could get him to my mom, he stayed here with us.
Pete is such a sweet dog. Ten years old and grossly overweight(which we are working on) he lives only to please.
The whole arrangement put Reilly out to no end, and I don't think I realized how much till we got home yesterday.
Yesterday was the big day for Pete. I loaded him and Reilly into the car and off we went to Lake City TN, which is 1/2 way between my mom's house and here. I know Pete was confused, but I think he was fine once he saw mom again. The transfer went smoothly and after 30 minutes, Reilly and I pulled out and went home.
Reilly is an extremely good traveler and I love taking him with me. But we were both glad to get home yesterday afternoon, which is when I realized what a toll having Pete here had taken on him. I swear I don't think Reilly slept for a month, but he sure made up for it yesterday!!! He slept so long and so hard that when my DH woke him up walking by, he was so disoriented he started barking at him. :)...
He's better today and we're back to our normally scheduled programming. We miss Pete, don't get me wrong, but he's better off with my mom and her more laid back lifestyle :)....
