Where's Dog When You Need Him?

The title of this post is Dear Child's new favorite saying. She really misses Dog, who has gone off on his annual Passover vacation. I'm sure he's having a riot. The place where he goes has 3 big dogs of their own, plus daycare and a couple of boarding dogs at any given time. They go for huge, challenging walks every single day and eat a raw food diet.

We, on the other hand, are missing him quite a lot. There's nobody to curl up behind my knees when I lie down in bed or on the couch. There's nobody to drink up the leftover milk from Dear Child's Pesach cereal or to ask for the bones from the lamb chops. There's nobody to bounce up to you when you come in the door from being out someplace or to check out what you're doing when you open the fridge. There's nobody to turn a somersault in your lap and ask to have his belly scratched or to lick Dear Child's feet as she wakes up in the morning.

We won't get him back until Friday but maybe we'll get some pictures emailed to us in the interim....
