I leave for the weekend tomorrow. For the first time since I got my dog, Maddy, I have to put her in a kennel. She will be the guest of the kennel where I used to take my lab, Dez. Now, Dez loved the kennel. She would get super excited long before we pulled into the lot and she would bolt into the building before I could get out of the car. She loved it. Now, Maddy? That will be a different story.
When I told my vet I was having to put her in a kennel, he looked at me with an expression near disgust. He suggested I try and find someone to come into my home for the weekend instead due to Maddy's "obvious issues of seperation anxiety". Well, now that I am putting her in the kennel anyways, it is me who is having the anxiety. I am feeling super guilty for leaving. I am trying to figure out how I can do this.
At this point, I have packed all her favourite toys into her carrying case and I will hope she doesn't hate me when I get back.
I have a feeling I will cry for at least an hour after I drop her off. I'm so pathetic.
