A stranger in the house


A stranger came into the house this evening and I was not greeted with open paws, at least not like expected to be.

Seriously, I was gone for two and half days and the greyhounds acted as if I had abandoned them for life. I was greeted with a sniff to make sure I wasn’t off with other dogs and then, they just didn’t care that I had come home.

Apparently, business travel for me is unacceptable.

So please, join me on the Saturday Pet Blog Hop. I need some love.

  1. The two-legged “boys” in the household can be gone for a few days or two weeks, and the four-legged boys don’t seem to notice they’ve gone missing at all. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Upon return, the two-leggers are greeted with boundless enthusiasm from the four-leggers – the sort of greeting that only goldens (a breed prone to Obsessive Compulsive Friendliness Disorder) can produce, with jumps and wiggles and sniffs and stuffies shoved in your face. Of course, you can elicit EXACTLY the same greeting if you go out front and garden for a few minutes and then return. I’m sure, somewhere in those regal frames, some hearts are very glad to see you. 🙂

  2. How deflating for the ego:( I hope you’ve been forgiven for deserting them by now!

    Frankie and Beryl get more excited by the possibility of a car ride than me getting home from work, even if I’ve been gone for 12 hours. No SA in our home! Which is a good thing.

  3. Oh, I’ve been there, although I have to say that when Bunny and I got home this week, we were very warmly greeted by all! Apparently, the girls thought it was Mr. Taleteller’s fault that Bunny and I were gone. Morgan slept in the basement every night we were gone, but returned to the bedroom when Bunny and I got home, because apparently we were worth coming upstairs to protect!

    Bunny says that she would never leave Flocko behind! She wishes he’d been our traveling companion for the trip to Dewey!

  4. Oh, my dog gives me the cold shoulder if I am gone for longer than he expects too! I can go to work, anything more than that and he lets me know he is unhappy. Love the pictures as always. 🙂
