Day 85:

on the way to drop him off :(

Today, my heart was broken. Since we're leaving for the beach tomorrow morning, I had to take Levi to the vet so he could be boarded while we're gone. I HATE doing that. I think I would feel more comfortable knowing that he's going to be getting the attention he needs and that he won't be neglected. I'm sure the vet is a great place for him to be boarded, but I would just like to be 100% sure. Plus, I don't think it helped me feel any better that he's showing his age now. When I took him down to my car to get him in, I usually let him hop in through my door and then he jumps over the center console into the passenger seat. This time, I had to pick him up and put in my seat because he was too scared to jump up and then I had to help him over to the other seat, he wouldn't even climb over! The most heart-breaking part was when the guy came up and took him away. He kept trying to come back to me, but he couldn't because he had a leash on. It was sad to see him being taken away, but I'll think positive thoughts and say that while he's there, he'll be perfectly fine.

Ok, sorry for the long "pity party," but I'll leave you with some good news, I'M LEAVING FOR THE BEACH TOMORROW! As far as I know, the oil spill hasn't quite made it to where we're staying so hopefully, it will be gorgeous when we arrive.

If I can drag myself away from the beach and pool next week, I'll try to keep up with posting and with all of your blogs! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

  12. I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have a 10 month old puppy and I can't even stand leaving her at home when I go out with friends. I'm so attached, like she's my child or something haha my friends always make fun of me for it! So I'm def glad I'm not the only one who cares so much about their dog! Hope you had a great vacay, your pics looked like you had a great time! xo
