We have been busy all day running from pet sitters to grocery store, over to another store, back to the grocery store, washing, folding, packing, loading all in anticipation of heading out on vacation Puppy-less.
The kids and I put both dogs in the car (so bummed I didn't snap a photo - it was adorable) first thing this morning, headed over to one part of town to drop off our beagle at the Breeder of this lovely pet.
Then, we drove the opposite direction on the other side of our area to drop off Kolby at a CCI Puppy Sitters house. Their first puppy Turned In the same day with Haddie - we started Puppy Raising our firsts at the same time and got to support one another on that magical Turn In experience. Their puppy (a black male) is now living down the street and around the corner from them in a very loving home. They are happy to be able to puppy sit him every once in awhile, but they were excited to get a "puppy" under their roof again.
As with any first, I am a little nervous and praying that Kolby shows off his good side. Because not all puppies are perfect all the time, this little guy has a Mischievous Side to him.
But in the end, as we stood chatting for a good while on her driveway, Kolby immediately plopped down next to the Puppy Sitter and stayed. As we made our way to the car with Kolby not in tow, and as we backed out of the driveway without him, he just remained in a Down, panting a smile of relaxation, happy to have been left behind.
Ahh, what a cute boy.
Stay Tuned - I will post upon our return next weekend on the Puppy Sitter's Kolby Update. Paws crossed.
