Uh oh. Suji and Lulu are giving me their “You’re not going away, are you?” looks. It’s like they can sense our approaching departure. Suji has been even clingier of late, creeping up and settling down by my chest at night, insistent on cuddling. Even Lulu, who’s usually pretty cool, has taken up residence beside him on the couch when I work.
The plan is to take them out for no less than three walks tomorrow and really tire them out before dropping them off, late tomorrow night, at our dog sitter’s place. Tonight is our last night with them for 10 days! In the two years since we adopted Suji, we haven’t been away from her for more than one!
We’re double-checking our long list of instructions for their care. Highlights include feeding instructions (Suji eats fast so she can snack on a dental chew while waiting for Lulu to finish up), walk etiquette (they get a treat every time they do their business AND every time they cross a street AND at the conclusion of their outing), and meds and supplements (rimadyl, gabapentin, diethystilbestrol, Ester-C, D-Mannose, cranberry extract, CBD oil).
Hopefully they behave themselves. Suji can be a bit cranky, especially around other dogs while Lulu is generally pretty chill. However, both can be unpredictable poop machines.
