Don't Think He Misses Us

We are on a much needed mini-vacation so our dog Trooper is staying with friends of ours.  If you look up the definition of friendship you will find this:  people willing to house your gigantic, stinky, drooling, sensitive-stomached Mastiff while you are away.

I received this photo today and can safely say the dog is not suffering in our absence.  He's as happy as he gets when someone is willing to lay on the floor with him and cuddle.

If you know me you know that I am not the dog's biggest fan within our household.  Don't get me wrong, I love the dog, but you wouldn't know it by observation.  I don't pet him often, never get down on the floor with best I give him a rub with my foot.  Why?  Because he really is disgusting and I spend most of my life nauseous.  But when he is freshly bathed (as he was when we handed him over) and looking so sweet and furry, I can't help but miss him.

Thank you, Briana and Jason, for loving our dog!

That is a true sign of friendship! I was ALMOST to the point of sort of liking the thing until I slipped and fell in his slobber!! Love to all and hope you are having a great time!!

I totally agree Suzanne.

There are moments when Trooper redeems himself. This is one such moment.

Hope you are having a great time.

Miss you all.

Don't be too hard on yourself. There are plenty of us that are not nauseous most of our days and we still find him disgusting!! Wonder if Briana and Jason would like to take him when you go to Costa Rica as well?!
